Support to start Commercial Activities in Bangladesh

The Trade Council helps Danish companies in several ways to start their commercial activities in Bangladesh. The services can be customized depending on the need of the Danish company.

In case of small companies, the cost of entering a market can be significant. To overcome this challenge The Trade Council has subsidized programmes for small and medium sized Danish companies to assist with researching the potential of their product in the market abroad.

a. The Export Sparring program is constructed to prepare your business for exports in the best possible way. The program ends up with a specific export plan for your business. 

b. Vitus is The Trade Council's "elite program" for Danish companies who have the ability and determination to expand globally in the most efficient manner.

c. Strategic Business Alliances program is directed at groups of companies working on export markets.

d. GROW is a targeted internationalization program of between 50 and 200 hours of counselling. It is a highly flexible program for vast opportunities for customization.

Besides The Trade Council, the Investment Fund for Developing Countries (IFU) has Support for Small and Medium Sized Enterprises to promote and partially support small and medium-sized enterprises’ investments in developing countries. Through this fund, Danish small and medium-sized enterprises can obtain financial support for preparation and start of projects in developing countries.

Moreover, IFU is the fund manager for Danish Climate Investment Fund (KIF). KIF offers risk capital and advice for climate investments in developing countries and emerging markets in Asia, Africa, Latin America and parts of Europe.

The Danish Agribusiness Fund (DAF), also managed by IFU, provides capital and advisory services. It provides risk capital for agriculture and food projects in developing countries and emerging markets in Asia, Africa, Latin America and parts of Europe.
