go-international: Growing Global Success for Austrian Companies
Austrian Support for Entering Global Markets
Since 2003, we have supported Austrian companies in growing their sales in global markets. We are the Austrian Federal Ministry for Digital and Economic Affairs (BMDW) and the Austrian Federal Economic Chamber (WKÖ).
Branding Austria as a reliable and trustworthy partner, we offer member companies effective ways to promote themselves. Exporters from Austria utilize our insight, tools and leads to focus on their best opportunities abroad.
Austrian exporters can receive direct financial support from go-international to meet targeted goals. All programs are managed through the Austrian Federal Economic Chamber’s International Department and our trade promotion organization, ADVANTAGE AUSTRIA.
ADVANTAGE AUSTRIA is headquartered in Vienna, Austria. Representatives in all nine Austrian states provide a local interface for our 100 international offices in 70 countries, totaling approximately 800 employees.
