Multi Space Chains in Graz See coworking companies with multiple locations in Graz
The capital city of the province of Styria in the south of the country, Graz is the 2nd largest city in Austria after Vienna with a population of about 325,021 inhabitants. This is a university enclave of historical note, as it's home to 6 universities with about 60,000 students giving the city a youthful and exuberant vibe. It has one of the best-preserved city centers in the whole of Central Europe where you can sit and linger over an espresso watching the kids get up to mischief and the passing parade of tourists. The narrow surrounding streets are a treasure trove of little cafes, eclectic shops and can't-walk-by restaurants. The blend of Renaissance and Baroque architecture will keep you gawking around the city and there is a funicular for the lazy souls to get up the town hill "Schlossberg", where you will find a centuries-old clock tower. An influential force both politically and culturally, Graz is on the UNESCO list of World Heritage Sites and became a City of Culinary Delights in 2008, so you definitely won't go hungry at night after getting creative in a coworking venue during the day.
Dating back to the Copper Age, Graz is where the astronomer Johannes Kepler lived for a period working as a professor of mathematics at the University of Graz. There were many important people who worked or studied in the city from Nobel Laureate Otto Loewi to Ivo Andic. The Alpine air must have plenty of creative ozone layers as Austria has spawned the likes of Mozart, Strauss and Freud as well. Graz may not be a tech hub per se, but it does offer a lively vibe in an historical city with a brainy workforce of graduates. Austria is seen as an "emerging hub" where international young companies can have a dynamic ecosystem with plenty of exciting things happening in the financial area, as well as the political arena for supporting startups.
Many high-tech startups are beginning to look at Austria with fresh eyes or maybe stomach rumbles for its great food that can be indulged in before, during and after getting inventive in a coworking venue.
