The Danish Growth Fund (Vækstfonden) is the Danish state’s investment fund providing access to investment capital for Danish companies, in particular SMEs.
The Danish Growth Fund offers a range of financing options for start-ups. If, for instance, your enterprise has an aggressive growth plan, a convertible loan may be a suitable first step. Conversely, for more mature scale-ups, a traditional loan scheme may be a more attractive option to secure long-term finance without any risk of dilution. Among the most frequently used funding instruments from the Danish Growth Fund are convertible loans through the Early Engagement facility, and the Start Loan scheme.
