The 3rd largest city in Denmark, Odense has about 178,210 inhabitants. Located 45 km north of Svendborg and 167 km southwest of Copenhagen, the city is wrapped up with Hans Christian Andersen (think fairy tales), as this was his birthplace in 1805 and where he played as a child - you can poke your nose into his childhood home and you will see numerous statues and sculptures throughout the city streets of his fairytale characters such as the Tin Soldier, the Chimney Sweep and the Toad to name a few. Odense is an educational hub with plenty of educational institutions within its midst like the Odense University and the University of Southern Denmark plus many more, such as the Funen Art Academy for those into splashing a bit of colorful paint around. The town simply oozes creativity (maybe its in the city's water) as there are so many innovative minds in the city that it's little wonder coworking venues have become the playground of the future.
Odense has had people sauntering around its land for well over 40,000 years despite the fact that it isn't mentioned anywhere in writing until 988. It was a thriving city by 1070 that has endured unruly peasants, Vikings and the list of marauders goes on. Today it's a commercial hub and home to numerous industries with the Hans Christian Andersen Airport connecting it to the world. There is plenty to see in the city from museums to its bustling port plus quite a few churches where you can pop in and say a little prayer.
Not exactly a tech hub per se, Odense is a part of Denmark's startup scene that is flourishing. The Danish tech scene offers an interconnected and friendly startup community and capital is reasonably available for fledgling startups with big dreams.
The Danish Growth Fund is dishing out government funds as loans and helping new tech companies launch on the Danish stock exchange in an attempt to put them on the global market, but also to keep them based at home. Coworking venues are offering the locals of Odense a dynamic space where they can mingle with likeminded souls and bring their own fairytales to life.
