Werner Wutscher, Founder & CEO of New Venture Scouting


Born as a son of farmers in the mountains of Carinthia, Werner Wutscher is a strong believer that sustainability is the key strategy for the future. Sector wise he gained his expertise in the area of food and green technology.

As Business Angel he supported the founders and holds investments in seven start-up companies. Before that he was working for 14 years in top management positions in the Austrian Federal Government and in corporate companies as the REWE International AG.  In spring 2013 Werner Wutscher founded New Venture Scouting with the purpose of bridging the worlds of startups and corporate companies to gain innovation.

The lessons learned from his long management experience are that the biggest barrier between startup and corporate companies is the different culture. To create a level playing field and facilitate the dialog among start up- and cooperate companies to gain benefits for both of them, is a key competence of New Venture Scouting.
