We cooperate to strengthen Danish exports
Danish companies have to navigate an increasingly globalised world. It therefore makes sense to have broad-based cooperation if the objective is to strengthen Danish exports. EKF works with many different partners and organisations, both in Denmark and internationally.
Cooperation in Denmark
In Denmark, we work with a variety of public and private sector operators to help Danish export companies venture out into the world.

- Danish banks
- Erhvervshusene – the regional business development centres

- Vækstfonden – The Danish Growth Fund
- Trade organisations, including the Confederation of Danish Industry, the Danish Chamber of Commerce, the Danish Wind Industry Association, SMEdenmark (the new Danish Federation of Small and Medium-Sized Enterprises), the Danish Agriculture and Food Council, Danish Maritime, and more.
The regional business development centres
EKF works closely with the six regional business development centres on exports and growth. EKF helps customers in the regional business development centres with export financing, while the business development centres help EKF's customers with growth.
This means that, as an exporter, you can talk to an advisor from EKF in the business development centres and receive assistance and sparring regarding the financing of exports.
The work by the business development centres to strengthen growth and exports means that they regularly screen their customers and set up meetings with EKF when relevant. Similarly, EKF regularly refers customers to the business development centres.
The business development centres keep an eye out for companies with the potential to grow, and who need advice and sparring in order to make full use of their potential. Sparring is independent, professional and aimed at your company's needs. It is also based around your day-to-day work and the challenges you face.
The business development centres typically help to strengthen companies in areas such as management and strategy, economy and financing, sales and marketing, internationalisation, and technology and innovation.
