WE DEVELOP INNOVATION SITES
Location matters. Areas of Innovation are spaces designed to attract skilled companies and entrepreneurs, as well as new talent and investment. How do you do that? By focusing and enabling scientific, technical, educational and social resources in one place. This approach is proven to drive increased sustainable economic development and societal growth.
THE GREAT NORTHERN
Our first Area of Innovation, The Great Northern (TGN), has now been up and running for three years! We believe TGN has developed into northern Sweden's most innovative meeting place where ideas and people, whose paths don’t usually cross, meet.
By pooling important resources, we help both startups and success! established companies develop and succeed in local, national and international arenas.
GREAT PARNERNS & FRIENDS
The Great Northern works with some carefully selected Great Partners, Friends and Creators. Their expertise is an important source of inspiration and knowledge for our members, while the partnerships also promote the entire startup scene in Skellefteå. >> Aspia, Balanserad, Boliden, Norran, Nordea, Luleå Tekniska Universitet and Zacco <<
A HOUSE FOR GAMES
In 2019, we helped Campus Skellefteå welcome gaming companies, because we understood that a collaborative gaming community is crucial to a vibrant gaming industry. Now there is a creative place where games studios can together develop the next big game success!
A NEW CAMPUS
We want to take Campus Skellefteå into the future. With the help of the municipality we are analyzing the need for additional education institutions, such as international universities, to meet future challenges.
