‘Born Global Champions’ award for Austrian start-ups

12. July 2016

Prizes for 55 young Austrian firms who have set their sights on internationalisation from day one

A total of 55 new Austrian companies were declared ‘Born Global Champions’ by the Austrian Federal Economic Chamber (WKÖ) at an award ceremony held on 21 June 2016. The awards recognised young firms (founded in 2010 or later) that from the very outset have established a global presence, provided innovative products and services, and achieved rapid international growth.

The awards were presented by the President of the Austrian Federal Economic Chamber, Christoph Leitl, and State Secretary Harald Mahrer. What their recepients all had in common was of course the courage to see the whole world as a potential market – a characteristic that has already brought them considerable success.
