The city hosting the Alpen-Adria-Universität in Klagenfurt also benefits from organizations supporting businesses and innovations such as the Lakeside Science & Technology Park and incubator build! Start-up Center.

Not far from Klagenfurt, the next startup hotspot in Carinthia is being built in Villach. Surrounded by international industrial groups such as Infineon and research institutes such as FH Kärnten and Silicon Austria Labs (European top research center for electronics-based systems), startups benefit from a unique dynamic and numerous business opportunities.
