Our latest handbook focuses on helping cities and regions to improving their work to attract businesses, investments and entrepreneurs. The handbook has been developed in the project “Business Attraction Management in Nordic Cities and Regions“, which was finalized in February 2016. Then Future Place Leadership was called Tendensor International and this was done in co-operation with Nordic Place Academy.
The last decade has witnessed intensified competition between places and regions for investments. New places have entered the competition, at the same time as the global pool of investments has been shrinking.
More proactive promotion of incoming investments on both local and regional level will be needed in the future – and it needs to take new forms.
The purpose of this handbook, therefore, is to identify strategies, tools and activities for effective and innovative Business Attraction Management for cities and regions. The handbook offers inspiration and guidance on how business attraction can be initiated, managed and developed.
One special feature of the handbook is that it focuses on how business attraction can be integrated with the general innovation and growth agenda of the place.
