2022 | StartupBlink View the Global Startup Map p. 153 Startup Ecosystem Overview The relatively low cost of living in Czechia, along with low tax rates and a central location in Europe, are major contributors to its potential growth and status as an attractive location for foreign entrepreneurs. The high-tech industries and the gaming sector are already relatively developed in the country, and now is the time to improve more industries and build higher quality startups. Proving that the country has the capacity to create these higher quality startups and scale globally, Czechia welcomed Rohlík in 2021 as its first unicorn. The Czech government, along with organizations like CzechInvest, are focused on developing the national startup ecosystem in a number of ways. Most notably, the government offers a Startup Visa for entrepreneurs establishing new enterprises in Czechia. With plentiful investment from both domestic and international sources, Czechia is fertile ground for entrepreneurs targeting the European market. The country's prosperous economy boasts high GDP growth rates and one of the lowest unemployment levels in the EU. Moreover, the skilled workforce and lower employment costs make the country attractive to investors. Deeper investment in the local startup ecosystem will help Czechia diversify away from manufacturing (around 80% of GDP depends on exports) and strengthen its technology-based service and knowledge economy. It is encouraging to see that the government is prioritizing this aspect in 2022 by incentivizing investment in tech startups through new legislation.
