Frequently Asked Questions
How can my startup be on Founded in Austria?
Fill out this form. If the startup hasn’t been submitted before, it will be queued up for review. Note that not every company will directly surface on the homepage as lots of startups are submitted each day.
How long does it take before my startup gets posted?
It can take up to a few weeks.
Why didn’t my submission get accepted?
Your startup probably doesn’t match with one or more of the criteria:
- They were founded in Austria in the 21st century
- They have the ambition to transform their industry
- The founders could all do an Arnold Schwarzenegger accent
My startup matches the criteria, but it’s still not posted. Why?
Are you sure you didn’t submit a hobby project, some fatuous idea or just an obscure blog (we get a lot of those)? Yeah, we thought so. No worries, we still like you. Unless you actually don’t like Ah-nuld. But all kidding aside, if after 6 weeks we still haven’t posted your startup and it did match the criteria we might feel the quality of your idea or the design of your landing page isn’t a good fit with the rest of the projects.
My startup is listed, now what?
That’s great! This means you’re among the most innovative startups founded in Austria. Now you can spread the word on your social channels and your significant other will think you’re infinitely more attractive, people in the streets will cheer for you and cartoon birds will fly around you for a day.
My company wasn’t founded in Austria. What can I do?
We’ve got you covered. We’re working together with international partners to have a local list in your country. Head over to Founded X to check if your country is already available. And otherwise we’ll get you up and running with your own list, using our awesome starting kit.

I have another question. Who should I contact?
Who is behind Founded in Austria?
The Austrian list was founded by Probots and ClubDesign in Austria. After discovering the Polish version, we found out about the international FoundedX community and offered our help in starting an Austrian list. We are all passionate about the web and loved the idea of putting together a showcase for our nation. Full disclosure: We are also the founders of Pagelanes (and several great things to come ;), but we don’t let that fact cloud our judgments since most of all we’re enthusiastic about great ideas.
