For entrepreneurs

If your enterprise is a start-up company, Vaekstfonden offers a range of financing options depending on your business needs. The various types of financing offered are tailored to the various types of business plans. If your enterprise e.g. has an aggressive growth plan with high scalability ambitions, a convertible loan may be your first step towards greater access to capital if you are not yet quite ready to take on a direct investor. Or perhaps your enterprise has the prospect of more moderate growth, then long-term financing may be a suitable option giving your enterprise solid access to risk financing without the offer of equity interests in return. Regardless of which entry to Vaekstfonden you may use, we will still take a broad approach across all credit lines to find the best combination for you.
