Gregor Demblin started Career Moves with the goal of creating an inclusive Austrian job market. His new venture, disAbility performance austria (today: myAbility), is the link between commerce and people with disability. The entrepreneurial and social goal is to help companies identifying the potential in disabled people.

Social Impact: In Austria around 15% of the population is disabled and although they are capable and willing to work, only 40% are employed (compared to 70% of the total population). disAbility performance austria is the first intermediary between companies and disabled people with the aim to identify and use new potential.
