Startup Guide Vienna

City description

Vienna has been easy to overlook as a city of the past, a charming city with its best days behind it. When in fact, that is not true at all. Global Entrepreneurship Monitor found Austria to be the strongest country in Europe for pre-seed investment. With a number of natural advantages, such as the location in the heart of Europe, low costs of development and light of recent success stories, the Austrian startup-scene can no longer be overlooked and Vienna is positioning itself as one of the most attractive cities to launch a new company.
