Odense has passed an ambitious industrial policy with the goal of placing Odense in the top three over the most prosperous urban areas in Denmark before 2017. Our efforts to reach this goal will make Odense an even better city to live – both for companies as well as for children, youngsters and adults.
However, already at this point Odense is a very business friendly city. As a newly established company or as potential newcomer, you are able to make use of Erhvervskontakten – The Business Contact – which will serve all of your needs for information and help for establishment. Erhvervskontakten helps both new as well as established companies with reviews and authority approvals. In this way, all necessary information is gathered in one place.
Odense and Funen are situated in the heart of Denmark as a centre in traffic between the European continent and the rest of Scandinavia. We have attractive sites ready for development, i.e. in Tietgenbyen right next to the motorway. Through good collaboration with the business intermediaries, we also help you finding rentable business facilities.
Besides offering help with establishment and reviews, Odense also offers a broad spectrum of counselling to help each company in its continuing development. We offer specialised counselling e.g. in sales, financing, or professional boards – and in most cases counselling is offered for free. Are you looking for other business people to discuss the challenges of your company with, we offer you a seat in one of our networks for managing directors or functional managers.

University of Southern Denmark and the rest of the educational institutions in the city consolidate a well-educated workforce for the companies in the areas. Odense furthermore has tradition of strong working alliances between the university and the businesses.
