The bustle prevails in TakeOff, the new start-up environment at Science park in Odense, and more companies would like to join the start-up environment.
At the 1st of February 2016, Syddanske Forskerparker (Science Park) in Odense opened their start-up environment, TakeOff. The new department must provide all the new start-up companies, who want to be a part of the free office and counselling offer. The demand for start-up environments like TakeOff, seems to continue. The entrepreneurial environment on Funen has plenty of power, which provides bustle to the Takeoff environment.
“We are very pleased that the start-up teams choose us. There is a jumble of entrepreneurship offers, but the application for Takeoff convinces us that our way of doing things is right. We do not encumbrance the new entrepreneurs with models and processes. We try to facilitate the three main things, which starting entrepreneurs need: space, counselling, and capital”, says CEO at Syddanske Forskerparken Helle Thylkjær Henriksen.
