Tampere is quite often called the “Manchester of Finland” due to the industrial history and large presence of textile manufacturing plants in the very heart of the city. This pet name has also echoed the mentality of our region: in order to get things done, one must work hard to achieve it.
Nowadays the pet name has changed, and our city has been referred to as the “Dubai of Finland”. But, just like in the past, there is always a hint of truth behind every joke. Tampere and its population, infrastructure and business opportunities are indeed growing and developing - fast. The Tampere region (Tampere, Kangasala, Lempäälä, Nokia, Orivesi, Pirkkala, Vesilahti and Ylöjärvi) is vibrant and active, and each municipality has maintained its own unique qualities. And in the very heart of the region are we: if you need any help with internationalization Talent Tampere is here to help you.
