Funding Programmes

Danish Growth Fund // Vækstfonden


Since January 2023, the Fund has been included under the new state loan fund, Denmark’s Export and Investment Fund.

The Danish Growth Fund (Vækstfonden) is an investment fund regulated by the Danish state, that provides access to investment capital for Danish companies, in particular SMEs. In more detail, it offers a range of financing options for start-ups. For instance, if your enterprise has an aggressive growth plan, then 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 Vækstfonden for young entrepreneurial enterprises are convertible loans through the Early Engagement facility as well as the Start Loan scheme.
