2006: repositioning as “RIZ Niederösterreichs Gründeragentur” (RIZ, the Start-up Agency for Lower Austria) with the objective to provide business consultancy to founders and young entrepreneurs all over Lower Austria.



You can find the RIZ all over Lower Austria: Our RIZ-consultants are looking forward to visiting you and supporting you free of charge and comprehensively in all Lower Austrian districts. But you can also visit us directly at one of our numerous RIZ-locations: We operate RIZ business incubators in six communities where you as a young entrepreneur can not only profit from our consultancy offers but also use our offices and production space.
