Recognising Austria's "Born Global Champions"

21. July 2015

65 exceptional Austrian start-ups which launched an internationalisation strategy immediately after they were founded were honoured on 30 June. 

Born Globals is the term given to companies which took an international approach very early on - usually right after the start. Thanks to their success it is hardly surprising that the 2015 Austrian Export Day in the Austrian Federal Economic Chamber focussed on the large number of small and medium sized Austrian companies that enjoy worldwide success. President of the Federal Economic Chamber, Christoph Leitl, presented 65 Austria start-ups with the title of "Born Global Champion".

Companies invited to share the limelight included the pioneer of laser-based precision measuring Crystalline Mirror Solutions , the IT provider for optimising diabetes treatment mySugr , the navigation specialist for interiors and the boot sale app shpock , to name just a few.

The companies recognised were founded in 2010 or later, sell innovative products or services and went international in a very early phase of development. They represent the spirit which Austria needs in order to retain its international success in the future..
