World Bank: Denmark Once Again Best European Country for Business in 2017.
For the sixth year in a row Denmark is ranked the easiest place in Europe to do business. Globally, only New Zealand and Singapore are ahead of Denmark in the World Bank’s ‘Ease of Doing Business Index’, which presents quantitative indicators on 11 areas of business regulation for 189 economies.
The Danish Minister for Foreign Affairs, Kristian Jensen, says:
“It is important for our ability to attract foreign investments that Denmark is one of the world’s best places to start and run a business. We will take advantage of the excellent ranking to make even more international companies aware of Denmark as an attractive place for doing business. I am also pleased to see that Denmark is the best country in the world to use as a base for international trade.”
Placing your fintech company in Greater Copenhagen will give you access to a great number of benefits that will support your success. Three of the most important ones are:
1. Great environment
In the recent report ‘Passport to the Future’, the UK’s Emerging Payments Association analysed alternatives to London to find the best locations for fintech companies after Brexit. Greater Copenhagen was listed as one of the six shortlisted areas and is ranked highest on the 2017 ‘Doing Business’ world rankings.
2. Great people
Being European leaders in creativity* is attractive to talents all over the world, and maybe that is why, according to Insead’s Global Talent Competitiveness Index, Greater Copenhagen has also succeeded in establishing itself as the world’s best region for attracting talent.
3. Great locations
Fintech companies can make themselves at home and become part of the Greater Copenhagen fintech environment through one of the newly established co-working spaces Copenhagen Fintech Lab, located in central Copenhagen or The Camp, which is located west of the city centre. Both co-working centres work closely with the established financial services sector.
