Digital Mile IconThe Spirit of Linz

DIGITAL MILE

The path to the top of the world measures 1.8 kilometres, just over a mile. A path that no one should walk alone.

THAT'S WHY WE FOCUS ON WORKING TOGETHER INSTEAD OF ALONE. IT IS PERSONAL RELATIONSHIPS, FRIENDSHIPS AND JOINT PROJECTS, BEYOND COMPANY BOUNDARIES, THAT FUEL THE DIGITAL MILE. BE PART OF THIS COMMUNITY IN LINZ, WHICH IS DRIVEN BY INNOVATION AND CREATIVITY AS MUCH AS BY SOCIAL INTERACTION.

The spirit of our DIGITAL MILE is inspiring. A spirit shaped by over 110 digitisation companies with over 3,000 employees who are shaping and developing our future in a concentrated space.

Companies with above-average growth and innovative strength. Companies that combine their strengths and form a community that fires each other up, supports each other and together creates a UNIQUE PLACE TO LIVE AND WORK.
