UCE sponsored two students to attend Entrepreneurship Avenue Conference in Vienna on the 13th of May, with flights and accommodation paid for.

This is the largest one-day student entrepreneurship conference in Austria. With over 1000 attendees the conference is designed to inspire and encourage students to start or grow their own business with a startup workshop and visits to local co-working spaces and Incubators lined up for attendees.

Andy Graham and Alistair McLeay, the two students selected for the competition, left on Friday the 6th of May and have now returned home safely. Read on to hear how their trip went and to see photos.
