An innovation hub that brings together companies, organizations and researchers to co-create solutions for better cities.

A community founded on the belief that the challenges of global urbanization and climate change require a new collaborative approach.

A Nordic launchpad for future urban solutions. And a gateway to the Danish & Nordic markets for international companies.

The Urban Challenge

By 2050, two thirds of the world’s population, approximately 7 billion people, will live in cities. This massive global urbanization presents a major challenge to the way we design, build and think of urban environments in the future. BLOXHUB is designed to meet this challenge.

Torben Klitgaard, BLOXHUB Director:
“By bridging architecture, design, construction and digitalization, we can unlock the full potential of cities as engines for growth and development and as places where people want to live. A stronger collaboration across sectors is crucial to creating better cities.”

Co-creating better cities

With 550+ desks in a state-of-the-art building, designed by OMA, access to a global community of hubs, tailored matchmaking workshops, accelerator programs and export services, BLOXHUB Co-Working Space creates an environment for sharing ideas, thoughts and opportunities. In short, BLOXHUB is a platform for connecting, sharing and scaling businesses that create better cities.

BLOXHUB is co-founded by the philanthropic foundation Realdania, the Ministry of Industry, Business and Financial Affairsand the City of Copenhagen.
