by Nathalia Hentze Nielsen

An exciting moment is on the horizon for Aalborg’s business sphere as the city gears up to host its inaugural Aalborg Townhall event on October 9th.

Inspired by similar events in Copenhagen and Aarhus, this pioneering initiative aims to converge a diverse spectrum of stakeholders, from startups to seasoned investors, in a bid to foster collaboration and innovation within the local business ecosystem.

At the heart of Aalborg Townhall lies a clear vision: to serve as a catalyst for forging connections, facilitating deals, and creating an environment conducive to collective prosperity.

By convening established businesses, burgeoning startups, investors, and entrepreneurs under one roof on an annual basis, the event seeks to unlock synergies and foster an ecosystem where everyone can thrive.

Program highlights

The event promises a dynamic program, commencing at 17:00, where attendees will be greeted with an evening brimming with engagement opportunities.

A panel discussion, scheduled to kick off at 17:15, will delve into the current state of Aalborg’s business and startup landscape, featuring insights from local entreprenuers alongside an expert moderator.

At 18:00 there’ll be a thought-provoking session dedicated to exploring avenues to position Aalborg as an attractive investment destination. This segment will feature a blend of local perspectives and external expertise, offering attendees a comprehensive understanding of the city’s potential.

Following this, rapid-fire pitches from five local businesses will provide firsthand accounts of their evolution from fledgling startups to established enterprises.

The evening will culminate in open networking sessions beginning at 19:30, providing attendees with a platform to forge meaningful connections, explore collaboration opportunities, and indulge in refreshments, including both alcoholic and non-alcoholic beverages, alongside vegetarian and gluten-free culinary offerings.
