AREAS OF INNOVATION

 

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 in operation 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 intersect -- meet. By pooling important resources, we help both startups and established companies develop and succeed in local, national and international arenas.

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. By creating meeting places and a science park-like environment, we are also working to attract more technology and gaming companies to move to Campus Skellefteå.

 

GREAT PARTNERS & 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.
