Studenteropgave: Basisprojekt


This project investigates how the current Danish government (2017) strives to obtain the highest score in selected areas of the Organization of Economic Co-operation and Development’s (OECD’s) Global Entrepreneur Index (GEI). The areas that are being examined are the entry regulations, business taxes and financial options for startups and small and medium-sized enterprises (SMEs). In the area of entry regulations, the current Danish government has simplified the procedure to create a business, through online registration and less capital required to start it. There has only been minor changes in the business taxes, but the overall taxation has not significantly changed. On the area of financial options the current Danish government provides a variety of different loans (equity, collateral or direct loans) through a state backed investment fund through banks and mortgage institutions. In addition to the three areas the discussion in the project discusses the future government plans and other relevant factors such as brain-drain and corruption.
