Networking in Jyväskylä

Jyväskylä is a vibrant and genuine city of just the right size from the perspective of business and networking. In addition to growth and development, we emphasise faith in cooperation between people and human activity. Jyväskylä has an exceptionally open culture of cooperation and an atmosphere of trust that encourages others.

Our attractive and youthful, human-sized city is home to more than 9,000 companies and over 146,000 residents, one in three of whom are students. The University of Jyväskylä, universities of applied sciences, and educational institutions maintained by the Joint Municipal Authority for Education continuously produce a skilled, new workforce as well as internationally high-quality innovation and research activities to support business operations.

We will guide you to relevant networks

We know the city’s business development networks, companies and talents, and we will guide you to them when needed. We operate in different networks either by being part of the network ourselves, by owning and financing the network’s operations or by working closely with the networks. For example, we provide business services in addition to our own service offering, in collaboration with other organisations operating in our business service network.

Our partner networks include business organisations, funding organisations, educational institutions, business incubators and other business service providers, as well as business premises builders, tenants and landowners. Our partner networks also include international operators.
