Entrepreneurs make an invaluable contribution to the Danish economy. In particular, this applies to growth entrepreneurs that rapidly create new jobs and impressive revenues. Hence, it is the goal of the Danish Government that by 2015 Denmark is among the countries with the highest start up rates of high-growth enterprises.
The Danish Entrepreneurship Index is a unique tool in securing that focus is directed towards policy areas in need of attention. The 2006 Entrepreneurship Index covers a significant amount of data and quantitative comparisons of entrepreneurial performance and framework conditions for entrepreneurship across the OECD countries. The Index identifies framework conditions conducive to emerging growth companies. For example, this applies to entrepreneurs' access to financing and counselling, personal taxation, entrepreneurship education and restart possibilities.
