Internship for entrepreneurs

An entrepreneurial internship is a startup process, where you independently work with developing your entrepreneurial competences, while growing your company for 12 weeks.

As an entrepreneurial intern you are deeply involved in planning your 12-week internship. Hereby you get an individual process that is tailored to your needs – and furthermore a strong network with other entrepreneurs. Please note that there might be workshops and others during the internship period that will be held in Danish.

We have the following requirements for you:

  • That you are autonomous and highly motivated for growing your business
  • That you actively participate
  • That you actively contribute with your knowledge and competences in the network of other entrepreneurs

In addition, we require that you have 'proof of concept' and that you are at least ready for the next step: 'proof of sale'. Just like you already have clients in the pipeline. Read more about the concepts here (only in Danish).
