What is 5starts?

5starts is sektor5’s homegrown incubator program that invites selected startups to a 5-months-“scholarship”.  After an open call for applications, the successful candidates receive tailor-made programs during which they can truly focus on advancing their product and idea. 5starts organises individual workshops, trainings and hackathons, and offers access to our valuable sektor5 alumni-network and investor eco-system.

Since its foundation in 2010, sektor5 has been offering an ideal environment for a thriving Austrian IT-Community that counts internationally acclaimed start-ups MySugr, Codeship and blossom.io among its alumni. sektor5 is proud to facilitate and nurture young talents and has established its own accelerator program 5starts in January 2016, with support from the AWS JumpStart Initiative.
