Since June 2015, the WU Entrepreneurship Center has been the central place to go to for guidance on student entrepreneurship in Vienna. It is the long-term goal of the WU Entrepreneurship Center to help increase the number and especially the quality of entrepreneurial activities amongst WU students, alumni and faculty.

The WU Entrepreneurship Center is located on the beautiful WU Campus in Vienna.



Creative Prism is a free community format that we organise. We put in quite some effort to curate an interesting experience for our visitors.

We want to keep it affordable and accessible but your appreciation at the event is more than welcome if you'd like to help us to keep the lights on :)

We recommend the equivalent of a movie ticket (around € 5-10) but are happy about any amount that you chip in at the event.
