What is a program?

The programs are for Nordic startups with a proof-of-business in their home market who are ready to scale internationally. During the three days you will get hands-on insights on how to grow your business in the specific market together with a local network that would otherwise take you months to build.

During the three days we cover following subjects

Tax, VAT, payslips, bank accounts and local contracts. All subjects you have to get your head around when setting up your business internationally. We will set you up with the right people who will guide you through the jungle - feel free to send specific questions before the session.

We introduce you to leading co-working spaces and offices opportunities. During the program you will get connected with a number of Community Managers to give you a point of entry once you are ready to scale.

Hear about different go-to-market strategies from local sales experts and get hands on experience from founders who has successfully penetrated the market.

Learn about fundraising from local international investors and hear investment stories from other startups. The program ends with half a day of pitching and feedback with local based Angels VCs followed by networking in the Danish Ambassador's residence.

Expand your network with Danish Founders who already made their way to international expansion. Get hands-on recommendations and learn from first-hand experiences - how did they tackle cultural differences? What are common pitfalls when hiring your first employees? What are the Do's and Dont's?
