Establishment of new companies

A more proactive approach to lead-generation in 2018 should ensure that company interest in setting up business in Uppsala remains high.

In 2017, Uppsala BIO and Uppsala Municipality developed a six-step process for generating and managing establishment requests. About 200 companies from France, India, Japan, China, the Netherlands, Sweden, South Korea, Germany and the United States participated in the process. One new establishment became more or less complete in 2017, although the final signature is not yet in place. In 2018, proactive work, not least for lead generation, will increase in collaboration with Uppsala Municipality, Business Sweden and several other key players.
