Austria is easy to approach and an excellent test market for Finnish companies to the European markets. Digital Roadmap Austria encourages Austrian public and private sectors to digitalize their functions as digitalization opens new opportunities for growth, work and prosperity. Like other major European cities, Vienna attracts new start-ups and talents. Vienna has plenty of hubs for growth companies with their own sparring programs. Finnish knowledge in digitalization and experiences in developing and supporting start-ups combined with Austrian openness for innovations create new business opportunities in both countries. Austria also has a strong SME sector to cooperate with.
