Growth drivers Central Denmark Region is home to 68,000 private enterprises employing a total of 450,000 full-time employees. They have an annual turnover of DKK 670 billion and their annual exports amount to DKK 170 billion. In order to facilitate the competitiveness of these companies and create new jobs, we regularly launches new initiatives with a consistent emphasis on financial viability as well as environmental and social sustainability. Global challenges require global solutions. Collaborating in broad partnerships with industry, educational facilities, NGOs and other public organisations, the Central Denmark Region is striving to find better solutions to benefit enterprises and citizens alike. In order to create sustainable solutions, challenged by the increasing urbanisation, innovative thinking and collaboration across sectors, professions and traditional fields of businesses will be required to a greater extent in order to meet the complex challenges faced by cities and towns. We are proactively promoting and spreading knowledge of the potential of a circular economy, as a means of addressing global challenges and the resource scarcity to which we are already subject and which will only increase in future years. We have knowledge and experience in establishing cooperation between knowledge institutions and SMEs. Through our projects we have created new ways to enter the Danish innovation system and that as a result, we are continuously concerned with creating good conditions for knowledge cooperation. We take a coordinated approach to creating better conditions for the establishment, development and growth of entrepreneurs. This effort includes guidance for entrepreneurs, access to venture capital and an initiative to promote entrepreneurship in the educational system.
