The best business experience
The strategic objective of the operating environment and services is the best business experience.
The Tampere city region is a good place to live and run a business. Surrounded by nature and culturally rich, the small, big city makes for smooth everyday life. The low-threshold networks and ecosystems are easy to enter. Alongside the large locomotives, the region also values the hard-working small businesses that keep the economy going. A culture of collaborative enterprise makes Tampere a good place to try out business ideas, even those that fail. Regional cooperation between business operators penetrates bunkers and municipal boundaries. The common goal of business operators is the best business experience in Finland – together we do more business.
“A lot of actors and services that support business; we are stronger when we work together. — Regional cooperation is a clear strength in national comparisons, including in business, and this strength is worth making even more use of.”
The best business experience is created on the foundation of well-managed fundamentals and service attitude. This requires a helpful attitude in business services and business cooperation, cross-organisational and cross-municipal services that are shaped to meet the needs and experiences of businesses, key account thinking, and a rapid response to the needs of businesses. Business operators in the region create the best business experience by focusing on business engagement, startups, and promoting business collisions and business cooperation as well as supporting the development of business ecosystems. In practical terms, this can be seen in improving town planning and business cooperation, streamlining of permits, coordination and service design of business services in a one-stop-shop approach, improved customer management and a business-positive attitude toward the economic activities of the city region. The best business experience can also be reflected in a distinctive innovation process in the region, for example by using ‘group consultation’ which brings together different experts to pollinate new ideas.
