About Grow Impact Days February 2nd-4th

Grow Impact Days is an online conference, created to give you as startup/investor/corporate a chance to learn more about the ecosystem of green/impact/sustainable growth companies in Central Region Denmark. 

We have gathered +16 speakers from corporates, startups and public institutions from Central Region Denmark who will help us all understand the ecosystem from different perspectives. 

The event is split into 3 morning sessions from 9.00-10.30, focusing on respectively: Day 1: Startups and entrepreneurship, Day 2: Investors, Day 3: Corporates and public collaboration. 

Ultimately, we hope to show you why the ecosystem isn’t just philanthropy but actually a great opportunity for local business to collaborate.
