Starting a business might feel like a huge and lonely journey. But it doesn’t have to be like that.

In Denmark, the help is always close by in the form of local business centres and regional cross-municipal business hubs that provide a range of services and support to entrepreneurs, startups, and scaleups.

These centers and hubs are designed to provide a supportive environment for companies of all shapes and sizes to grow and thrive. And typically, they have a lot to offer free of charge as they are usually funded by the public authorities.

Service for all sizes

Most municipalities in Denmark have a local business service centre for new entrepreneurs. Their services typically include 1:1 guidance on starting, running and developing your own business, as well as events on basic business topics. The hubs also provide access to funding opportunities, including grants, which can be particularly beneficial for new entrepreneurs.

Only a fraction of these local business service centres is listed in this guide and only as examples.

In addition, there are 6 regional business hubs in Denmark. These hubs provide specialized guidance and act as the entry point to the business promotion system for small and medium-sized enterprises.

Their services include specialized 1:1 guidance, training and workshops on topics such as marketing and finance, assistance with business development, access to funding opportunities, networking events, etc.
