Scaling a company from Austria is not easy. Finding product market fit, attracting VC funding, entering different markets like the US, APAC, LATAM etc. needs some special tactics. In his talk, Christopher Müller will describe how the Bitmovin team found its bridgehead into the market and what mistakes they made. He will give insights into their start as a research project at the university in Carinthia, how they raised millions of dollars in the US and established Bitmovin as a successful company in Silicon Valley with currently more than 65 employees worldwide and offices in San Francisco, New York, Vienna, Berlin and Klagenfurt.
