It is no coincidence that its name is Vækstfabrikkerne, Danish for Growth Factories. Since its inception in 2010, Vækstfabrikkerne has helped more than 500 entrepreneurs and small companies in Denmark’s Zealand region grow. The initiative, funded by the region’s municipalities and the European Social Fund, today consists of 13 business incubators. Entrepreneurs enter a 1.5 to three-year growth programme of mentoring, networking activities, workshops, meetings with growth consultants, and an educational course in entrepreneurship in cooperation with Danish universities.
