sofasession at e-DAY:15

sofasession got nominated for the innovation price by Austrian Federal Ministry of Science, Research and Economy and was invited to participate at the e-DAY:15 organized by WKO and FFG.

Straße der Sieger – Road of Winners |


As we were nominated for the innovation price by the Austrian Federal Ministry of Science, Research and Economy, we were invited to participate at the road of winners at the e-DAY:15.

We were able to present sofasession to an interested audience and show how our service works. At the road of winners we met a lot of interested people from those curious about what’s behind that name, over hobby musicians to professionals and potential future business partners! We got great reactions and triggered some aha-moments when we introduced the plenty functions of sofasession like meeting new friends, jamming for fun or use it to improve your musical skills.

The response and feedback was great and gave us some ideas how we can further improve our service!

Innovation price

The grand finale of the eDAY:15 was of course the award gala in the evening. The competition was fierce and there can only be one winner taking home the award, unfortunately this time it wasn’t us.

However with the winner being KI-I – a company that improves the lives of disabled and elderly people by giving them access to non-trivial games and even musical instruments it’s half as hard we weren’t first place and easy to congratulate!

We would also like to congratulate the winner of the Staatspreis and the nominees in the various categories as well as the winner of the Advancement Award and wish them all the best and success with their ideas:

winner: opera live

nominees:  Telereal (Knowledge, Education, News and Information), zacktrack (Games, Entertainment, Imaging and Communities), Anyline (e-Commerce, m-Commerce, e-Marketing), D.A.R.V.I.N. (Enterprise Services, Technology Provider), offener Haushalt (e-Health, e-Government, citizens’ service and open data)

Advancement Award: offisy GmbH

All in all the e-DAY:15 was a great event, we had a lot of interesting talks and met a lot of charming people, we hope to see you soon on sofasession.
