Preparing to export

Start-up considerations

The traditional routes of market entry are:

  • direct exports

  • finding a distributor or wholesaler

  • joint venture

Once you have a foothold in the market you should consider starting up a Danish subsidiary. This is a quick and relatively easy process in Denmark.

‘Invest in Denmark’ and ‘Copenhagen Capacity’ provide information on setting up a business in Denmark. See: and

Doing business in Denmark is very similar to doing business in the UK. If your product or service is successful in the UK, there is a good chance you will be successful in Denmark.

Denmark is a member of the European Union (EU) so there are no significant trade barriers in exporting to Denmark.
