Startup scheme for growth entrepreneurs
”Startup scheme for growth entrepreneurs in Northern Jutland” was a pilot project in the North Denmark Region, which supported entrepreneurs with growth potential. The focus was mainly on vacant school leavers from further education institutions in the region, but in principle, the project was open to everybody who had a promising idea and the potential to become a growth entrepreneur.
The pilot project ran over a 2-year period from February 2013 to March 2015 with the main purpose to inspire more vacant school leavers to choose an entrepreneurial career.
The project reduces the risk of taking the plunge as an entrepreneur, since he or she could get the necessary help to qualify their start-up in a safe environment. Getting the necessary help in the start-up phase is especially important for entrepreneurs with very innovative ideas and high growth potential.
