Learning together – How one Danish scheme gets big business to help SMEs
Søren Røn is the Programme Director for Next Step Challenge, a Danish initiative linked to the EU’s Scale Up training program, that seeks to help successful European SMEs make the transition from being big fish in small, local ponds to expanding into global markets.
Euronews asked him what are the main advantages of the Scale-up Denmark programme?
“The activities within the Scale-Up Denmark programme for each participating company is both workshops or camps, and activities where we get a full insight into how to actually fulfil your go-to-market strategy for example. It could also be the facilitation of ecosystem meetings with either large corporates that are within the given industry, but also with the cluster organisations and all the institutions. But most of all is this specific training of the participating company with at least 180 hours of business expertise that we give to them. So we train them, within the business area that they are within,” he says.
