About Tech city Aarhus

The area of Aarhus has a strong it- and tech environment including tech businesses and startups as well as research and education. The tech environment is only growing bigger every year and in the area of Aarhus it grew with significantly 41 percent from 2014 to 2021. This immense growth has led to an increasing demand for a platform that unites the industry and lies the foundation for networking and co-operation between the multiple tech businesses in Aarhus.


Tech City Aarhus

is the result of this increasing demand. The platform is brought to life through the collaboration between several private businesses, DI Digital, Destination AARhus and the City of Aarhus. The purpose of Tech City Aarhus is to support, evolve and make the tech environment of Aarhus visible through knowledge sharing and networking. Tech City Aarhus will do this by tapping into the existing and former initiatives, while also collecting and coordinating the contributions for them to strengthen the tech environment, the private-public cooperation and the cooperation across the local business environment.

- To contribute to an increase in competitiveness in the local businesses through digital transformation and the development of digital businesses
