All information about the funding of up to €10,000.

As part of the Corona self-help package, the Vienna Business Agency has launched the "Vienna Online" funding for the development and expansion of online shop systems for Viennese small businesses. The funding covers 75% of the costs (up to €10,000 per company) and includes the areas of local supply, creative industries, and personal services.

WHO is eligible?

Small and micro enterprises in the areas of local supply, creative industries, and personal services with a business location in Vienna.

The aim is to strengthen the city of Vienna's local businesses for competition with large international online shops. For many companies, this is a unique opportunity to improve their digital presence.

WHAT is funded?

Investment costs, acquisition costs such as hardware, software, shipping and storage, consulting services, external (IT) services, marketing costs, license costs. If these costs are related to the development or expansion of online sales systems for the sale or brokerage of products or services.

The funding does NOT have to be repaid to the funding agency.

Example calculation: Assuming you are planning the project "New website including online shop" for your business.

The total value of the project is €4,000. The funding covers 75% of that, so €3,000.

You only pay €1,000 and get a new website including online shop. The remaining costs are covered by the City of Vienna as part of the funding and do not have to be repaid by you.

WHEN is funding available?

A distinction must be made between the deadline for applying for funding and the deadline for implementing the project.

The application for funding must be submitted by June 10, 2020, at the latest. The project must be completed by December 31, 2020.

Note: Don't take too long. Funding is only available as long as the funding pot has not been exhausted.

HOW do I apply for funding?

ATTENTION: These funding sources have now been exhausted! However, the Vienna Business Agency offers numerous other lucrative funding opportunities for SMEs. Here in the funding directory, you can search directly for suitable funding opportunities.

You also apply for funding directly through the Vienna Business Agency. To increase the chances of your application being approved, you should obtain a cost estimate or offer for the project you want to fund from a service provider and submit it together with your application for funding.
