Checklens is “Born Global Champion 2022”

Checklens is Born Global Champion
  • Checklens is one of the fastest internationally growing companies in Austria.
  • Checklens has been recognised with the « Born Global Champion » award by the Austrian Federal Economic Chamber.

Checklens is very excited to receive the « Born Global Champion » award for its international success. The award is presented annually by AUSSENWIRTSCHAFT AUSTRIA/ADVANTAGE AUSTRIA during the Export Day in Vienna. Deputy Secretary General Mariana Kühnel and the President of the Austrian Federal Economic Chamber, Harald Mahrer, presented the award.

For the eighth time, the Austrian Federal Economic Chamber is honouring companies as « Born Global Champion » that have succeeded in positioning innovative products and services worldwide at a very early stage of their corporate history. The focus is mainly on rapid international growth. For Checklens, this is the second award within a very short period of time after receiving the prestigious silver EY Scale-up Award for aspiring companies.

It takes not only a good product, but above all a lot of courage to go beyond Austria’s borders with a product or service at a very early stage.

Harald Mahrer, President of the Austrian Federal Economic Chamber


The Born Global Champions stand for quality « Made in Austria ». The basis for this is the strong focus on innovation and internationality.
