Did you Know?
... that Austria is the ideal Startup-hub? Here are the reasons why: ◾The very high educational level from a technical perspective, guaranteed by the universities of technology and many universities of applied sciences. ◾The differentiated funding system, in which financial startup assistance is provided to high-tech founders based on specific programs and startup funds implemented by the Austrian Research Promotion Agency (FFG) and Austria Wirtschaftsservice GmbH (AWS). ◾The self-organization of the startup scene in startup clusters and coworking spaces, and its promotion through activities and large events such as the Pioneers Festival. ◾The supporting network of early-stage investors, incubators and business angels, which has become increasingly professionalized, as shown, for example, in the founding of the Austrian Angel Investors Association (AAIA). ◾The “public limited company with a privileged amount of share capital“, facilitating the setting up of companies by requiring only EUR 5,000 as a minimum cash contribution instead of EUR 17,500. ◾The investment-friendly tax system featuring a twelve percent tax credit for investments in research and a unified corporate tax rate of 25 percent.
