Fynsk Erhverv helps breach the gap between entrepreneurs and established businesses via our Next Level and Next Generation groups. In the Next Generation group we match the experienced businessmen with the innovative young entrepreneurs, to facilitate the growth of healthy businesses. Another sparring happens by having the entrepreneur do a “digital check” on the experienced business’ social media strategy and helping further development with advice.
The Next Level businesses are established but need fresh input from a Business Advisor. The Business Advisor is a CEO from another member business who is screened and approved by an internal board presently consisting of Peter Zinck, John Klindt and Mogens Tveskov (also members of the Board of Fynsk Erhverv). The sparring between the advisor and the Next Level business is confidential and can help the business entering a new phase or change.
Our organisation is non-political, but participates in the public debate on behalf of our members on matters concerning business life. Recently a committee headed by Jesper Møller – former CEO of Toms A/S – was formed to lobby for the removal of the fee on the Storebælt bridge, something that weighs heavily on the businesses on Funen.
Fynsk Erhverv is a business organisation financed 100% by member fees with NO public support. The organisation has existed for the past 155 years, previously under the name the Funen Center of Commerce and since the beginning been found in the beautiful old city house at Albani Torv 4. More than 500 companies from all branches of business on Funen are currently members and participate, in amongst other activities, our 12 professional networks – with more in the pipeline. Fynsk Erhverv also arranges other business related activities – often in cooperation with member businesses, such as seminars, debates and committees.
If any of the above has intrigued you, contact us for more information or join our next introductory meeting (in Danish) on February 24th which is followed by the Startup Odense Community Meetup – an excellent opportunity to network where we are this month’s host.
