New meeting places offer new opportunities

If you do the same thing everyday, you can expect the same results. What would happen if you met companies from an industry outside your own? We arrange meeting places that promote development and offer new opportunities.

We help you

Business Region Göteborg can help you make new business contacts in your own and other industries – here and abroad. You can turn to us for ideas about different financing alternatives, to get in touch with politicians and decision makers in the municipalities of the Gothenburg region or to discuss development opportunities when you have an innovative idea. We can help bridge any gaps in expertise slowing the development of your company and put you in contact with researchers at universities and institutions. In short, we can help you with:

  • Cross-boundary collaboration
  • Innovation-friendly meeting places
  • An overview of test beds in the Gothenburg region
  • Facts & figures about our leading industries and clusters

Providing the region with the right expertise»

You know which expertise is required by your company and in your industry. Tell us about your future needs and we'll ensure that seats of learning are informed about future educational needs.

Research and enterprise in harmony»

You develop products and services in your company but perhaps lack an in-house research and development department. Fortunately, the world of research is closer than you think. We help you make the contacts you need.

Which cluster are you a part of?»

When companies and stakeholders cooperate within a region or an industry to improve their opportunities to develop and succeed, we often talk of clusters. Geographic proximity can provide advantages when it comes to the exchange of information and access to cutting-edge expertise. Industry partnerships can benefit purchasing, product development and regional brand building.

How a strong region benefits you

When business goes well for companies in our region, willingness to establish operations here increases. Companies already operating here grow, expertise is kept in the region and more jobs are created. This, in turn, attracts both national and international expertise and investments. We become a knowledge-based region where research, development and innovation thrive. Success begets success.
