Perched on the Jutland peninsula's east coast, the city of Aarhus is the 2nd largest city in Denmark with about 273,077 people walking, sipping espresso and peacefully sleeping in their homes. The town is 187 km from Copenhagen and 289km from Hamburg in Germany, so you have a few options if you wish for a change of scenery. Once a fortified Viking settlement founded in the 8th Century, the region has had people traipsing over its land since about 948 when it was founded on the north shores of a fjord at a natural harbor. Historically its economy was derived from its seaborne trade, but it suffered blockades and bombardments during the Swedish Wars. Known internationally for its musical history, the city has run the gauntlet of being a jazz haven in the 1950s to rock plus other genres during the 1970s and the 1980s. It's home to an annual 8-day music festival "Aarhus International Jazz Festival" plus it hosts the NorthSide Festival and the SPoT Festival. Named the European Capital of Culture (with Paphos in Cyprus) in 2017, creativity oozes from the city's pores and coworking venues are flooded with imaginative minds.
The old town of Aarhus is like stepping back in time, as it's basically an open-air museum flush with centuries-old timber houses, whilst the green thumbs will love to meander around the Aarhus Botanical Garden. There is even an underground Viking Museum to get the history buffs excited and the Aarhus Cathedral is waiting for you to walk into so that you can say your little prayer for a bit of heavenly help with your startup. Aarhus is the cultural and economic hub of the region with the largest bustling center of trade, services and industry with many large companies having their home bases in the town. It's also a research and education enclave with Scandinavia's largest university within its midst.
Denmark's startup scene is flourishing and offers an interconnected and friendly startup community to mingle and collaborate with. Capital is reasonably available for fledgling startups with big dreams and the government is dishing out funds as loans to help new tech companies launch on the Danish stock exchange in an attempt to put them on the global market, but also to keep them based at home. Coworking venues are offering Aarhus' locals dynamic spaces where they can mingle with likeminded souls before tucking into some "smørrebrød" (think rye bread topped with raw herrings) during a quick break.
