Hire a "growth pilot"

Is your business small or mid-sized and located in a rural district? 

If you're focused on new opportunities and growth potential, the Growth Pilot programme may be your cup of tea. 

The programme provides small and mid-sized business in rural districts with the opportunity to hire a recent graduate for a "test flight" of up to two years.

See your company's growth and development take off

The recent graduate must work on an innovation project at your business. For example, this could be the development of new products or new manufacturing methods.

Your company will receive a grant to finance the one or two-year long employment term.

The Growth Pilot programme is a part of Innovation Fund Denmark's growth programme. 

Read more about the programme on Innovation Fund Denmark's website. Their website also shows which municipalities qualify as rural districts.
