(Oct. 2015, in Danish)
329 student startups applied for a Micro grant in the period June 2014 to May 2015. The analysis is based on a survey with 89 responses from applicants of whom 50 received a Micro grant and 39 were rejected (these function as control group).
The results of the survey is that a Micro grant positively influences the survival rate of startups. Another result is that earlier experience with entrepreneurship has an influence on the quality of the application and thus for the chance of receiving a grant. A third result is that Micro grants create jobs; in the experimental group, far more jobs were created than in the control group. Finally, the grant recipients were far better than the control group members at obtaining growth capital. And growth capital, again, increases the ability to create jobs.
