Horizon Stage

AUSTRIAN MEDIA INDUSTRY – Technological Innovations & the Future of Media Technology 

The Media Innovation Lab, part of the Media Hub Austria of the Mediengruppe Wiener Zeitung, supports start-ups and visionaries in the realization of new ideas, formats, and technologies for the entire Austrian media industry. With an incubator and funded fellowship program, it offers targeted expertise, a co-working space, an alumni network and media contacts. Since its launch in 2021 more and more tech start-ups, but also content start-ups with a focus on novel user experiences or community building, have been applying for these funding programs. The Lab strives for more international collaborations, works with universities and partners and promotes synergies for the global market success of the participants. This holistic approach ensures a smooth process from the idea to market maturity and creates a dynamic environment in which innovation can flourish.  

At a time when technological innovations are advancing faster than ever before, it is crucial to be at the forefront. The start-ups presented here offer precisely this innovative strength and are setting new standards in the media industry. From advanced production technology to revolutionary distribution tools and new forms of media consumption, these companies specialize in overcoming the challenges and opportunities of digital transformation.  

Be inspired by the creativity and innovative spirit of the participating start-ups and discover the opportunities offered by the next generation of media technology. 

Speakers will be announced soon. Stay tuned!
