Copenhagen Capacity is the world's most innovative investment promotion agency
23 October 2013
Copenhagen Capacity has been awarded the world's most innovative regional investment promotion agency in the Global IPA Innovation Awards 2013 - an award initiated by Financial Times (fDi Intelligence).
Copenhagen Capacity won in the categories: Most innovative regional IPA and Investment environment improvement initiative/government policy advocacy and Regional collaboration. Furthermore, Copenhagen Capacity got a second place (honorable mentions) in the category aftercare.
- We see it as a great acknowledgement that fDi Intelligence has rated Copenhagen Capacity as the most innovative organisation of its kind in the world. This confirms our view, that we need to continue the close intra-regional cooperation to promote the Capital Region of Copenhagen as an attractive place to invest and set up business in," says Claus Lønborg, Managing Director of Copenhagen Capacity.
Investment promotion is a highly competitive and increasingly challenging endeavour. With fewer greenfield projects on offer and yet more viable investment destinations in the mix, competition is getting ever fiercer.
- Among the most difficult tasks facing investment promotion agencies today is finding ways to differentiate their locations from competitors in a global world. Such differentiation requires an innovative approach and that is exactly what Copenhagen Capacity is striving to adopt and develop further, concludes Claus Lønborg.
