With customers such as BBC and RTL, the originally Carinthian video streaming company Bitmovin is one of Austria's strongest start-ups. In 2018, the firm concluded a USD 30 million round of financing. Now it is receiving a further eight-digit capital injection in the form of a loan by the European Investment Bank (EIB). The start-up will have up to EUR 20 million at its disposal, mainly for research & development.
