Växjö is the centre of a dynamic region. The favourable business climate and the well-known inventiveness in Småland create growth and confidence in the future. Successful co-operation between business, the municipality and the university has prepared the way for many exciting developments. In Vaxjö, companies flourish in close co-operation with other local agencies. Växjö is recognised as being one of the best places in Sweden to locate a business. There are around 6,800 small, medium and large companies in Växjö.
