What about Trondheim?
With local slogans like: “Knowledge for a better world”, “Technology for a better world” and “The living, innovative society strategy”, it may come as no surprise that Trondheim, Norway's 3rd largest city and the tech capital of the country, is dedicated to co-shaping the city and surrounding region as a living, breathing, and engaging test-arena. The city's business actors are dedicated to making Trondheim the best city in Norway to start and grow your company. Trondheim boasts a model that has quietly grown out of 1,000 years of innovative culture, and recently been moving into centre stage through collaborations spanning from the Nordics to Asia.
Since its earliest origins Trondheim has been an international city that fostered a culture for innovation and exploration, tightly woven into the city’s population, resulting in a knowledge sector that works hand-in-hand with the municipality. Trondheim Municipality is a forward-thinking and experimental body that promotes citizen engagement, interaction and a strong entrepreneurial climate.
