Financing, advice and own office
IFU offers advice and risk capital and typically participates in an investment from planning over implementation and until the company established is financially viable. Once the shares have been sold or the loan repaid, the proceeds are reinvested in new companies.
The Danish Climate Investment Fund, which is managed by IFU, can invest with Danish companies or in climate projects using Danish technology, know-how or services.
IFU has its own regional office in Bogota, Colombia, offering advice on location. The locally employed regional director is on the board of a number of boards in the companies established in cooperation with Danish companies.
