weXelerate, the largest startup and innovation hub in Central and Eastern Europe, named the startup DAGOPT as the winner of the first ever weXelerate Startup Award. DAGOPT beat out other candidates during its final pitch in front of 130 national and international guests and received the most votes in the public voting. This was preceded by a multi-phase selection process. An independent jury of experts consisting of representatives from the fields of media, banking and insurance, energy and infrastructure, Industry 4.0 and cross-sectional technologies evaluated all participating start-ups. Fourteen start-ups were chosen and were subsequently subject to public online voting in which the category winners qualified for the last phase of the award. DAGOPT offers a broad range of modelling, optimization and software solutions to simplify everyday business operations. Accordingly, the startup supplies tools to enable companies to make the right decisions.

The objective of the award is to provide a platform for national and international startups and to honor the best achievements. Up until now, close to 150 startups have taken part in the weXelerate Accelerator Program. “The Startup Award gives weXelerate an attractive presentation and networking platform for young entrepreneurs and offers them access to potential investors. In this way, we want to make a further contribution towards positioning Vienna as the place-to-be for Austrian and international startups “, says weXelerate Managing Director Claudia Witzemann.

The new research allowance in Germany – in competition with the Austrian research tax credit?

Companies carrying out research and development in Austria have the possibility to apply for research funding, namely the so-called research tax credit. In an international comparison, the Austrian research tax credit is a recipe for success and is designed to showcase and enhance the attractiveness of Austria as a research location. The successive increase in the research tax credit from the original level of three percent in 2002 to 14 percent at present has made a massive contribution to this success.
