Anna Mee Allerslev
To the public, Anna Mee Allerslev is probably best known for her work as Employment and Integration Mayor of Copenhagen and chair of the National Association of Councils’ Children and Culture Committee. But as employment mayor, an additional focus area for Anna Mee Allerslev has been to create synergies between job creation and Copenhagen City Council’s enterprise policy and services. To that end, after the last election, Anna Mee Allerslev resumed responsibility for Copenhagen’s new business centre, which aims to make it easier to do business in Copenhagen. The business centre offers small and large enterprises flexible access to the council, entrepreneurship training and support for international citizens, looking for jobs in Copenhagen. In addition, Anna Mee Allerslev sits on the board of Copenhagen Capacity, the inward investment promotion agency (IPA) for Copenhagen, and played a key role in putting Copenhagen on the map of leading FinTech hubs.
