Implementing the strategy
Solid and seamless cooperation and a clear division of tasks between the economic development units of municipalities and the city region’s economic development agency are vital for implementing the strategy and for the success of all activities. This is why there is an external management team, which includes representatives from the economic management of the owner municipalities and the company management. A second interface is Tampereen kaupunkiseudun yrityspalvelut Oy, which provides, for example, advisory services for new startups.
The economic units of municipalities organise services for businesses in their municipality. These include services connected to business premises and lots, zoning plans, building permits, traffic arrangements and infrastructure. The economic bodies of municipalities have direct knowledge of the local businesses and opportunities to visit them. Through them, the services of the economic development company are accessible to businesses, and the necessary information on local special needs is transmitted to the company.
Business Tampere offers comprehensive electronic services for the needs of the city region. The company is responsible for many of the development entities mentioned in the strategy, such as ecosystem development, investment promotion and regional business marketing.
