20th Vienna Stock Exchange Punch with fundraiser for integration initiative "START"

(Vienna) After a two-year break, the Austrian capital market community came together yesterday evening for the 20th “Wiener Börse Punsch” event. More than 500 guests visited the festive courtyard of Palais Caprara-Geymüller, headquarters of the Vienna Stock Exchange, over the course of the evening. The event is traditionally dedicated to a charitable cause and supports the education and integration initiative "START Stipendien Wien" through a fundraising campaign.

"The stock exchange has technically always been a very open place where people of all backgrounds have been united by their passion for progress. By supporting the charity and integration initiative, we continue sending this signal. With education, especially more financial education, we can break down politically shaped and historically grown barriers”, says CEO Christoph Boschan, CEO Wiener Börse AG.

About the "START" scholarships

The non-profit association "START Stipendien Österreich" supports committed young people from low-income families with a migration background. By supporting, advising and accompanying the scholarship holders, the aim is to improve development opportunities and open doors. The Vienna Stock Exchange has been supporting the initiative for many years and this year, in addition to the donations, handed over a cheque of EUR 10,000 for their social fund. In recent years, several scholarship holders gained work experience during an internship in the stock exchange.
