Posted on by

On October 29–30, more than 2,000 individuals representing technology, science and entrepreneurship will gather in Vienna, Austria for the Fourth Annual Pioneers Festival.

Thanks to Ustream, thousands more around the world will be able to experience the event live as it happens through the Pioneers Festival channel.

Established in 2011, the Festival’s mission is to gather the smartest minds in technology and science entrepreneurship “to showcase, impact and shape our tomorrow.” The 2014 slate of speakers includes Fred Destin of Accel Partners, Nancy Duarte of Duarte Design, Neil Patel of Kissmetrics and Justin Kan of Twitch/Y Combinator.

And if that’s not enough, how about a flying car?

At Pioneers Festival 2014, Slovakian company AeroMobil will unveil the Flying Roadster, the prototype of “the world’s most advanced flying car.” The company has been working on developing a flying automobile for two decades, and on October 29, the world will get its first live look — in person in Vienna and around the globe via Ustream

It all kicks off Wednesday, October 29 at 10 am CET; to follow all the action, tune in to the Pioneers Festival channel on Ustream.
