The ØreXund project

Did you know that research shows that cooperatives – democratically owned and operated business – are proven to be more productive, more resilient in times of crisis and more sustainable than other types of businesses? It´s true, but unfortunately it´s not a well-known fact.

Considering how we live in uncertain times it makes a lot of sense to invest in future growth of new democratically owned and sustainable businesses in the Øresund Region. So we created The ØreXund project, gathering the key players when it comes to supporting cooperative entrepreneurship in the region to do some operative work together. Starting September 2021 a total of 120 companies (60 Danish and 60 Swedish) will be offered a unique sustainable entrepreneurship programme including business support, networking and mentoring.
