Danske Bank has announced it is launching a new digital hub to help Nordic entrepreneurs grow their societal impact.

The hub, named +impact, will allow start-ups to share their challenges with experts and get advice for free.

The initiative will offer access to experts from Boston Consulting Group, Implement, E&Y, PA Consulting, IBM and Danske Bank.

A new growth and impact team – headed by Klavs Hjort, senior vice-president at Danske Bank – will be responsible for the initiative.

The +impact hub will focus on companies that address one or more of the United Nation's Sustainable Development Goals (SDG).

The platform is based on a partnership between Danske Bank and global entrepreneur cooperative Rainmaking.

The bank will also set up an accelerator programme to help the companies grow and increase their impact.

“We realise that we will not be able to do this all on our own,” said Klavs.

“We will engage with partners in a collaborative effort to drive this ambition forward.”

The bank also plans to hold events to match companies with potential investors.

Jeanette Fangel Løgstrup, senior executive vice-president and head of societal impact and sustainability (pictured above), added: “We wish to use our role as a leading financial partner to address some of the challenges that we face in society.

“One of our priorities is to build relevant initiatives with which we can help entrepreneurs to grow their positive impact on society.”
