Tendensor was chosen as lead partner in defining the City of Umeå’s strategy for Talent Attraction and Business Attraction. The ambition is to involve businesses, universities and public actors in coordinated actions.
Umeå has for decades proven its place among the fastest growing cities in the Nordic countries. Today, Umeå is an international and a cultural city making global impact in a range of fields. For example, this year Emmanuelle Charpentier received the Nobel price in Chemistry for her research conducted at Umeå University. Moreover, Umeå has earned a reputation as a city standing up for inclusive and progressive values. But the national and international competition on talents and investment is challenging wich raises the need for Umeå to join forces to shine brighter on the global arena.
Tendensor was assigned in 2017-2018 for developing the overall Business Development Strategy of Umeå. An ecosystem approach was introduced as a framework for bringing all actors together around common goals and key strategies. This systemic approach will now be used for the talent and business attraction strategies as well.
