Vienna – made for your success
Vienna as a business location: safe, stable, prosperous
Located in the heart of Europe, Vienna as a business location gets top marks – and not just because of the fast connections available to nearby major cities. Your company is also well connected internationally. For more than 30 years, Vienna has housed one of the four headquarters of the United Nations and is home to around 40 other international organisations and institutions. Distances within the city are short, making your logistics fast, straightforward and inexpensive. And the rents for offices and business premises are significantly lower than in other cities with over a million inhabitants. Vienna impresses with prices that are still up to 75% cheaper than in London.
Well embedded in flourishing economic sectors
Important pillars of the Viennese economy are the life sciences, urban technologies, creative industries and ICT. You can enter into strong cooperations in Vienna especially in these sectors. Vienna stands out, for instance, for its lively life sciences scene, which includes around 1,550 research institutions with 45,000 employees, and which can cooperate with 21 universities and universities of applied sciences. Focusing on artificial intelligence, embedded systems, visualisation and IT security, among others, Vienna is considered one of the top ICT metropolises in Europe. It has over 17,000 companies active in the creative industry, so you can quickly network with 40% of the Austrian scene in Vienna. This location also offers an ideal environment for start-ups – around 9,000 new businesses are founded in Vienna every year.
How to convince your talented staff
Your professional and management staff members will find Vienna a place where cultural diversity, internationality and the highest quality of life come together – at an affordable price.
