ACI Leadership Mentors Austrian Team for VT KnowledgeWorks Global Partnership Week

Team at Global Student Business Concept Challenge

Stefan Strohmer, Henry Bass, Patrick Schubert, and Jim Wyers at Global Business Challenge

For the second year in a row, the ACI leadership mentored a team competing in the VT KnowledgeWorks Global Student Business Concept Challenge. This year ACI had the pleasure of meeting and coaching two students from Vienna, Stefan Strohmer and Patrick Schubert.

These gentlemen are on a quest to improve the conference and seminar experience. They have built a web-based app that increases audience participation, encourages engagement, and makes life easier for speakers and organizers.

Though Stefan and Patrick did not win the competition this year, we enjoyed working with them on their presentation and wish them the best on their endeavors.

Their app, Questful, is already a viable product. In fact, ACI encouraged Team Questful to take the bold leap of using their app throughout the Global Business Challenge. Jim Flowers, director of the VT KnowledgeWorks, said, “Demonstrating technology like this is always a risky proposition, but the Questful application performed very well for our competition. We wish team Austria every success.” Find out more at
