Support for companies in the entire City of Vienna
With Vienna Business Districts, Vienna has a new umbrella brand as well as new business zone management for the entire City of Vienna.
Vienna Business Districts helps Vienna-based companies anchor themselves locally. The pilot project, which was launched in Liesing and Floridsdorf by the City of Vienna, the Vienna Chamber of Commerce and Industry, and the Vienna Business Agency, is now being rolled out to eleven districts. For the areas Vienna South (Districts 10, 12, 14, and 23), Vienna North (Districts 19, 20, 21, and 22), and Vienna East (Districts 2, 3 and 11), there is one contact person each who ensures the optimal networking of the companies – amongst each other, in the district, and with the authorities. The district managers are the interface between business and administration.
In the initial phase of the project, 560 companies were supported in 2012. Now 5,200 companies – almost ten times as many – are benefiting from the expertise of the district managers. In Vienna South, an impressive 2,580 companies have direct contact, followed by 1,801 in Vienna North and 833 in Vienna East. A major focus is on networking and resource conservation.
The expansion of the project, a new design, and a new slogan “Wir unternehmen was in Wien” (We take steps in Vienna) ensure that the business districts are made even more visible.
