Awards event and reception for Viennese business enterprises in City Hall
Upon the invitation of Peter Hanke, City Councillor for Economic Affairs, and the Vienna Business Agency, about 300 companies funded by the Vienna Business Agency arrived at the Vienna City Hall on 10 April: at the "Danke Wiener Wirtschaft" reception, the City Councillor for Economic Affairs personally thanked the entrepreneurs, who also received an award at the event for their achievements. "There are about 125,000 companies in Vienna, which spend money, invest in the city and ensure that one million people have a job. This is a remarkable achievement and one for which I would like to say 'thank you'," said the City Councillor for Economy at the reception.
The entrepreneurs were not just expecting a networking evening with other companies – the district managers were also present when their companies were honoured with an award signed by City Councillor for the Economy Hanke, and Mayor Michael Ludwig.
Advice was also given about networking and, experts from the Vienna Business Agency were available during the evening to answer questions: "We are here for you. It is important to me to point out that we also assist enterprises with many other issues. Maybe you are looking for new locations, for operating plant permits, or even for suitable cooperation partners," emphasised Gerhard Hirczi, Managing Director of the Vienna Business Agency.
