Excerpted from the Denmark Career Guide

Small- and medium-sized enterprises, SMEs, play an important role in the Danish economy. The vast majority of Danish business enterprises, 99.7 percent, are classed as SMEs. Furthermore, micro-enterprises represent 87.2 percent of Danish SMEs. SMEs employ 66.2 percent of the Danish workforce.

Although the Danish SME segment weathered the financial crisis comparatively well, it still lost about 5.5 percent of its workforce over a period of two years, mainly in construction, tourism and trade. The European Commission (EC) forecasts a slow recovery for Danish SMEs.
