When the pandemic came, the entrepreneurial service began with digital course programs. This has been very well received by the entrepreneurs. The course program runs over several days with online gatherings, either during the day or in the afternoon/evening.

The course program is free and the feedback from previous course participants is very good. We encourage people who are going to start a business to get in touch.

Roald reminds that the advisors in the hoppid system are ready to answer questions or be a sparring partner for the entrepreneurs.

-You can also log in to the platform where you can continue working on your business idea in peace and quiet, and then when you are ready – be connected to an advisor from in your Municipality.

The program: Nine 60 to 90 minutes workshops (zoom) in a group with 12 others entrepreneurs or SMEs.
