Startups and companies on the island Funen will now have easier access to potential investors. The Danish Growth Fund, Invest in Odense, Business Development Centre – Southern Denmark, Developing Fyn, Innovation Fund Denmark and EKF – Denmark’s Export Credit Agency have established joint facilities and gathered a team of their funding experts. Financing Hub South Denmark is the name of the new capital center, which is based in Odense.
With Financing Hub South Denmark, companies gain easy and flexible access to a number of financial forces.
Companies gain knowledgeable sparring partners, access to a financial network, assistance in identifying sources of funding and knowledge. These benefits are helpful for companies needing capital for:
- New robot technology, automation or digital conversion
- Development of new products or services
- Export to new markets
- Company growth
The new ‘set up’ gives companies the possibility to be guided in the right direction by “knocking at just one door”. Similarly, business promotion players are able to share even better knowledge and experience about business needs – and thus be ready with prompt assistance.
At Invest in Odense, Investment Manager Michael Hansen also has great expectations for the new collaboration. “We are very excited about the fact that raising capital has come so high on the agenda and we can only support that the experts are getting connected in favor of the region’s businesses and that the network is getting stronger”, he says.
Financing Hub South Denmark will constantly develop. In the future the ambition is to gather even more players to help companies raise capital. This applies to other business professionals including the financial sector, auditors and more.
