Promotion of innovation

To assert its leadership in the field of technology and infrastructure the A1 Telekom Austria Group focuses on many areas of research and development (R&D). The topic of innovation has been implemented as a strategic cornerstone.
In Austria, A1 promotes innovation by new companies with its ‘Start Up Campus’ initiative, which provides expertise and infrastructure to help make innovations a reality.

Start-Up initiatives

Providing impetus for innovation in its markets and making those innovations available to a wider audience is one of the A1 Telekom Austria Group's general objectives. In order to implement its plans, the Group promotes and supports entrepreneurs and Start-Ups on its markets.

Thus, Austrian A1, for instance, in addition to A1 expert know-how, has been providing Start-Ups with a roof over their heads and modern ICT infrastructure at the A1 Start-Up Campus since 2015. In the coming years, this commitment is supposed to be expanded in the Group’s other subsidiaries, too.
