Business in Linz
Today Linz is Austria’s second largest business and economic area with over 6,200 businesses and 205,000 jobs. The city is in a unique position to boast more jobs than city inhabitants. Jobs mean tax income for local communities and the cities. And the local tax statistics are a strong economic indicator to determine the strength of an economic location. This is approximately 56 per cent or 223 € (!) more than the average per capita tax revenues of other comparable Austrian cities. Linz also has the consistently lowest unemployment rate of all the capitals of the Federal Provinces.
The focal point of economic policies in the near future is support for creative businesses. At this time, three new creative entrepreneurial centers have been designed and created not only to significantly contribute and strengthen creative businesses, but also add value and create new jobs.
