GreenTech Startups Austria 2024: Austria gets a map

The “Green Tech Valley Cluster” reports a new record: Austria has 193 GreenTech startups in the area of ​​energy, mobility and resource transition. A new map entitled “Green Tech Startups Austria 2024” lists them all and provides an overview of the GreenTech jungle.

What is the map used for?

Because the number of green tech startups growing in Austria is increasing. The big goal of the continuously growing map is to make green startups visible. In particular, industry, commerce and other companies could become aware of new startups in this way. “It’s about sparring partnerships in the manufacturing and technical sectors and about recognizing the green versions of tomorrow,” says communications project manager Viktoria Pranger from Green Tech Valley. Not for the first time, a merger of startups would have resulted in a jump into the global market. Initiatives like this create huge added value, especially through networking and matchmaking.

Energy and digital solutions in focus

There are currently exactly 193 startups, whereas last year there were 15 percent fewer, according to Green Tech Valley. Two thirds of the young tech companies come from the south of Austria – one third from Styria, the other from Carinthia. Vienna is also a GreenTech hotspot, but when it comes to new start-ups in 2023, Styria was able to overtake the federal capital for the first time. The “Green Tech Startups Austria 2024” map is divided into six core areas: Energy, Circular, Mobility, Building, Digital and Food. Cities with technical universities such as Vienna, Graz and Leoben are said to account for around 70 percent of all new start-ups – since January 2023 there have been exactly 29. More than half of these young companies focus on the fields of energy and digital solutions. Bernhard Puttinger, Managing Director of Green Tech Valley, sees a clear trend: “It is likely the strong innovation ecosystems of research, education and companies that give start-ups this impetus.”

These startups are there

The 193 GreenTech startups were identified together with the ten project partners AplusB centers, Austrian Startups, aws, Climate Lab, ECN, EY, Glacier, Impact Hub Vienna, invest.austria, climate and energy funds. If you take a closer look at the map, you’ll see that alongside established players like refurbed, Eloop and Rebel Meat Kids, there are also significantly smaller startups that haven’t been on the market for quite as long. solpure, Exaron, iquma and BET-Motors were all only founded in 2023. “solpure” produces easy-to-install photovoltaic modules, Exaron specializes in 3D visualization of processes, while iquma provides digitalization options for heavy industry and bet is working on new technology for electric trucks. In a Green Tech Valley survey of the listed startups, their greatest needs and focus were also determined. It has been shown that a large majority of 77 percent listed cooperation with industrial companies as their top priority. Only then does the focus on financing follow, according to Green Tech Valley.
