CultTech =
culture + technology
CultTech is the application of technology to the benefit of culture and society. It has the potential to empower creators and consumers, enable massive access to culture and foster new economic models.

Who we are
CultTech Association (est. in 2021 and formerly known as Immaterial Future) is a Vienna-based non-profit that believes technology is key to making culture central to human growth in a post-material world. We support and run initiatives that explore technology's transformative power and attempt to steer technological transformation for the greater good. Our scope of work includes supporting cultural startups, creating educational programmes and shaping investment opportunities.

Our vision
We strive for a world where culture is freed from financial constraints, and all humans can access it to empower their lives. Through the use of technology, we leverage culture as a core element of human growth.

Our mission
We are creating a new ecosystem by establishing a win-win relationship between culture and technology. These two worlds will benefit from each other and will create a new driving force for developing economy and society in a more sustainable way.
We are building a global community of like-minded individuals and ambitious initiatives that are reinforcing the potential of culture to become a game changer for other areas of human activity.
