Why Vienna?

As the central hotspot between Western and Eastern Europe, Vienna acts as a driver for innovation in the region. In recent years, the city has emerged as a startup hub, especially in the fields of information technology, smart city and life sciences as well as creative industries. In 2019, the Austrian capital topped the 2019 Startup Cities Index, which ranked 25 cities according to the factors most likely to impact startups, from the availability of coworking spaces to the strength of the local talent pool. Now, you can also be a part of the ecosystem that enabled startups like Runtastic, Bitpanda, PlanRadar or Kaleido to become successful internationally.

Whether be it a favourite international headquarter location in the CEE for over 220 multinationals, or the largest university city in Central Europe, or the world Top 1 place by quality-of-life for over 180 nationalities, Vienna has stood by its citizens and proved in recent months to be a reliable partner for the business community. Vienna is open for business and remains an international melting pot on the European map.
