înno up - the startup initiative of the Austrian Economic Chamber

The cooperation between established companies and startups is a successful model. With the new 'înno up' format, cooperations are actively initiated, thereby increasing innovative strength. In this way, both sides can learn and benefit from each other.

Startups are drivers and their innovations make a significant contribution to the development of new tools. The topic of sustainability and greening is often the focus here. After all, 63 percent of all startups make a contribution to sustainable development and are classified as green startups, as the Austrian Startup Monitor 2020 shows. In addition to specific innovation projects at existing companies, 'înno up' also gives companies access to sustainable solutions.
