No start-ups have experienced a pandemic before Covid-19. The world has changed, and we all have to deal with huge uncertainty in our businesses.
Therefore, a group of Danish venture investors and industry experts have chosen to help 100 Nordic start-ups.
How? Through counseling on how start-ups can adapt to the new normal and work with their businesses over the next 12 months to stay strong, secure growth and, at worst, avoid bankruptcies.
The counseling will be based on your start-up's needs and can range from fundraising advice and how to position your product and brand the best way in the next 12 months to how you change your business and business model or how to hire and fire to meet the new reality.
Our counseling panel will match you with the person we believe has the best skills to help you and your business.
You fill out the short questionnaire, telling us about your problem and what you would like feedback on
We will go through all the applicants and match your problem or question with the the person with the most experience within the area and industry
