The business location Vienna
Vienna combines tradition, culture and quality of life with the factors of a top business location in a unique way.
A stable political and economic environment, a research and technology-friendly climate, geographical and cultural proximity to the growth markets in the east and, not least, the highest quality of life in the world provide for a place at the very top of the world’s rankings. The areas of strength of Vienna businesses lie in the fields of life sciences, urban technologies, creative industries and ICT.
Ever more businesses are settling in Vienna: In 2015 the location set a record for international settlements with 175 new businesses. The location also offers ideal conditions for start-ups — more than 8,000 companies are founded each year in Vienna.
Headquarters of international organizations
Vienna is also the location of choice for international organizations. For more than 30 years the city has been home to one of the four headquarters of the United Nations and is the seat of numerous other international organizations and institutions such as OPEC, IAEA and OSCE. In total more than 3,500 diplomats and over 5,000 employees of international organizations work in Vienna.
