A unique Danish investment and development company
We are an investment and development company providing capital, solid business experience and a strong network in order to turn innovative ideas into successful businesses. We cover all of Denmark from our offices in Aarhus, Roskilde, Copenhagen, Viborg and Kalundborg.
This is how we work
CAPNOVA contributes to turning the ideas of innovative entrepreneurs into successful businesses by investing governmental, regional and own venture capital. We can invest up to DKK 6 million in a business under the Danish Government's Innovation Incubator Scheme.
CAPNOVA also offers expert advice and efficiently tackles specific challenges together with the businesses. Moreover, we assist in fundraising to facilitate the access of portfolio companies and other companies to the development funds of Danish and international foundations.
We only invest in projects that have their main activity in Denmark and where the project company is registered in Denmark.
The objective of our efforts is to create growth and sustainable jobs.
Phasing out the Innovation Incubator Scheme
In May 2018, the Danish government decided to phase out the Innovation Incubator Scheme by the end of 2018. This means that CAPNOVAs funds for investments in new businesses are now extremely limited and will completely expire from year-end.
Innovative start-up entrepreneurs, who seeks capital, are now in a very difficult situation, since almost no investor – private or fund – will accept the same high risk investment profile in innovative projects at the very early stage, as the innovation incubators took.
