NOVI Property Fund
NOVI is a commercial foundation characterized by the absence of an ownership or membership structure that can receive dividends.
This means that any surplus and every success we achieve go directly to the purpose that has been part of NOVI's DNA for more than 35 years: to stimulate and support the technological and business development in the North Jutland Region.
We believe that money should work for a greater cause - and that's exactly what we do. NOVI is a private company operated without state or municipal support.
We listen to our tenants and involve them in our decision-making process when developing new initiatives.
In recent years, development has been rapid; we have doubled the square meters within the last 7 years. Design-wise, NOVI's premises and graphic identity have changed, and our services have been expanded even further to make life a little easier for our companies.
Throughout its history, NOVI has initiated several initiatives for the benefit of business development in North Jutland, including:
- Establishment of the NOVI Scholarship with annual awards to both AAU and UCN entrepreneurs
- Establishment of 2 GrowAAL Entrepreneurial Houses (in Aalborg C and Aalborg Ø)
- Establishment of the venture fund Investo Capital focusing on Danish early-stage companies within the Tech sector
- Construction of the office building NOVI MEDI PARK (2026), with the aim of contributing to creating a strong ecosystem for Life Science, Digital Health, and Health Tech companies. The fundamental idea is to promote collaboration between companies, educational institutions, and the university hospital.
When you collaborate with NOVI, you can be sure that your participation in the community is not just a business transaction - it is a contribution to making a difference.
We invest in the future development of North Jutland, something that both the employees and the board of NOVI are proud of.
