As the innovation hub of DTU, DTU Skylab has several popular initiatives assisting start-ups and projects in developing their business and product offerings. For example, many promising projects need assistance when it comes to VAT, audit, financing, managing grants, etc. To help the startups as much as possible at the beginning of their journey, DTU Skylab and EY has entered a collaboration offering free consultation as part of DTU Skylab’s‘Advisory Days’. Pål Simon Fernvall, Project Manager at DTU Skylab Funding, is very pleased with the new initiative.
 
“EY is a very strong player in the consulting business within areas such as tax and accounting. For DTU Skylab, this collaboration ensures that the members of our community have access to expert advice when facing challenges on their exciting journey”, he says.
 
In addition to participating in the Advisory Days, EY will set up a hotline so students can get in touch between events and will give a number of presentations every year addressing the specific needs of the start-ups, such as understanding the public funding landscape.
 
Anne-Sofie Gregersen, EY Nordic Grants Leader and one of the initiators of the collaboration, views it as an important opportunity for EY: “At EY we are really looking forward to cooperating with DTU Skylab. We see it as an opportunity to contribute with knowledge and expertise across our organization to ensure start-ups get off to the best start. We aim to give them a solid foundation to ensure they have the competences and tools needed to leverage opportunities and face challenges head on”, she says.
 
By collaborating with DTU Skylab, EY is joining other companies such as Kromann Reumert and Zacco in providing free advice for promising projects and start-ups in the DTU Skylab Community. The initiative is driven by Sofus Majgaard and Frederik Hansen (Business Development), Anne-Sofie Gregersen (Public Funding) and Simon Blendstrup (Audit).
