Advisors who have personal experience from the business world operationally lead each Enterprise Agency. Most of them are, or have been, self-employed. In addition a broad network of local experts from different branches of business is at hand for support. An advisor at an Enterprise Agency evaluates the business idea, personal qualifications, the potential market, supports the creation of a market plan, goes through economic calculations and budgets, evaluates investment requirements and financing, goes through legal issues, insurance and formal requirements – and, finally, helps out with contacts through relevant networks.
In 2015 20 000 individuals come for advice. 10 000 of them started a business. It is vital that more companies start but the overriding issue is that they successfully survive. Only 1% (or actually 0,67%) of companies having started via a NyföretagarCentrum go bankrupt after three years – with 82% still being active.
