Startup Initiative – Vienna’s calling!

We would like to inform you about three open calls for international Start-ups and companies from the creative industries/FinTech/health sectors who would like to explore business opportunities in Vienna.
In the framework of the Start Alliance Network – a new type of city partnership designed to accelerate entry into new markets for international Start-ups – the Vienna Business Agency launched theses calls for international Start-ups.

The Vienna Business Agency offers one to two-weeks-programmes where the winners get insights into the Viennese Start-up ecosystem and the possibility to attend different sector specific events in Vienna.


The Cities of Start Alliance: Creating an international startup network

Beijing | Berlin | Dubai | London | New York | Paris | Shanghai | Tel Aviv | Vienna | Warsaw

Cities and regions – not nations are the upcoming magnets for innovation, creativity, entrepreneurial opportunities and talents and both need to do more to develop and retain an environment that can constantly provide solutions for today’s challenges.

Some cities already have ideal prerequisites as breeding grounds for innovative ways of thinking about business and instead of competing against it might be far more enticing to cooperate with each other.

Start Alliance aims to build a network of startup minded cities that cover every need for the startups deriving from those cities.
