Fra 02.07.2018

It is the scale-ups that create jobs, contribute to the economy and the Nordic region’s competitiveness on the international market. Scale-ups, or high growth companies as they are often called, are therefore key for the Nordic region to maintain the level of welfare we are enjoying today. So how can we increase the number of scale-ups in our region?
