Business & Jobs

The Herning area is a top performer in Denmark when it comes to an attractive and dynamic business climate.

Creating a good framework for businesses to settle and develop in the area is a key focus for Herning Municipality.

The key to this is a strong tradition of co-operation between businesses, authorities and education institutions, and a strong will to move things ahead together. With Ikast-Brande Municipal, we have a very strong business council that work for an excellent day-to-day service for our local businesses. They also work on constantly developing and improving longer term factors, like for example the infrastructure of the area.

Danish Industry has measured business climate for years, and since 2010 Herning has ranked top five. 

Our area has strong influences from the textile industry. But nowadays, Herning has a very varied business environment with strong and innovative players within for example metal, production, IT services, energy, hospitality, experience and service industries.

With a varied and dynamic business environment, and a great track record for young growth businesses, Herning is a great area for starting your own business.

According to the World Bank, Denmark has been the best European country to start a business in, for four consecutive years. Denmark also ranked 4th in the World as having the most dynamic and attractive business environment.

If you are interested in starting your own business in the area of Herning our local Business Council Erhvervsrådet Herning & Ikast-Brande is there to help you with sparring and practical advise.

The Business Council is based in the inspiring and successful Innovatorium in Birk, a few kilometers west of Herning. Innovatorium offers great facilities for start-ups and smaller businesses and organisations. But it is much more than an office sharing facility - knowledge sharing and innovation is actively facilitated among the approx. 70 tenants. This is just one of many facilities in the area for smaller businesses and start-ups.

The rules for residence and work permit vary, depending on your country of origin and whether your stay is shorter or longer than three months. See the Welcome guide from Workindenmark.dk, and newtodenmark.dk for details.
