About us – Styrian Business Promotion Agency - SFG


The SFG is tasked with implementing the economic strategy of the Styrian Government.  This partly involves the provision of monetary support with a broad range of grant and financing programmes, as well as other activities such as establishing and fostering clusters, networks and technology parks.  In order to effectively support and promote the region of Styria, it is essential for us to also look beyond our own regional borders.  Foreign investment is a key element and our dedicated Investors’ Services Department is happy to advise on the following matters:

  • general and economic conditions in Austria and Styria
  • fact-finding missions
  • in-house and third party financial support programmes
  • site selection
  • identification of partners and service providers
  • integration into existing clusters, networks and centres of competence

We are committed to forging links between Styria and the rest of Europe and beyond.  In this sense, the SFG is a proud host of the Enterprise Europe Network – the world’s largest support network for small and medium-sized enterprises (SMEs) with international ambitions and Horizon 2020 – the EU’s biggest research and innovation programme.
