Discover Carinthia’s startup landscape!


After intense collaboration with the startup community, we are happy to present our latest project: the map of the Carinthian Startup Ecosystem!
Our map aims to provide both new startups and startups looking to move to Carinthia with all the necessary contacts and resources they might need.

So far there are 90 entries on the map, but this is just the beginning. As our map is updated regularly, we hope that many more will join for the future editions!

Here’s how the map is structured:

  • Each point on the map represents an important institution for startups.
  • There are five different lines on the map, each representing a different category: Events & Networking, Education & Research, Co-Working & Community Spaces, Support & Incubation and Experts.
  • Points of interest are scattered throughout the map.
  • Institutions marked with an “e” symbol provide support for English-speaking founders.

We hope that this resource will not only be helpful, but also gets you started with your entrepreneurial journey in Carinthia with confidence, as there is more support than one could think, all it takes is reaching out to them!

All stakeholders and institutions featured on the map will get an exemplar of it. Would you like to get a copy as well? Then apply for it by sending us a direct message or an email to!

We would also like to take this opportunity to thank all of our supporting partners who made the creation of this map possible: Wirtschaftskammer Kärnten, Hirter BierMakerspace Carinthia, Regionalmarketing and Austrian Startups. A special thanks goes to our graphic designer, Ilab crossmedia, for creating this practical and beautiful map!

*Please note that the dynamic start-up ecosystem is constantly evolving, and we cannot guarantee the completeness of the map. We invite you to reach out to us at to help us make it even better.
