Vienna, July 2011 – The thriving Austrian IT business Wappwolf is moving headquarters from Vienna to Silicon Valley in the U.S. Michael Eisler, CEO and mastermind behind Wappwolf, says: “Preparations for founding a new holding located in the U.S. are currently in progress.” Austria’s Wappwolf GmbH will become the subsidiary of the newly-established Wappwolf Inc.
Harald Weiss, CFO at Wappwolf, premises: “While risk capital in Europe is almost dried-up, you not only get more willingness for taking risks in the States, but also more risk capital for innovations in the IT sector.” Weiss added that the biggest providers of web services can be found in the U.S. and that its market is a far more potent one that the Austrian, making establishing strategic partnerships all-round easier.
