The UK government is committed to promoting women’s economic empowerment and this mission will enable more women-led businesses to grow through exporting.

DBT Midlands and the British Embassy in Copenhagen invite 10-15 Midlands-based women-led* high export potential businesses to join this export development visit during International Women’s Week 2024. Connect to business opportunities in Denmark, share and celebrate how the UK and Denmark support female entrepreneurs and meet industry experts from Department for Business & Trade, Danish and international businesses, and women who have all made an impact, keen to exchange experiences and knowledge with you.

Denmark is one of the EU’s best-performing economies and #1 in Europe in the World Bank’s Ease of Doing Business Index. It enjoys low inflation, a healthy economic growth rate and low unemployment. English is widely spoken and doing business is very similar to the UK.

New (April 2022) legislation and peer pressure through Confederation of Danish Industry Organisation (DI) require a more equal gender composition in management and boards in both larger private companies and in the public sector.
