Jørgen Guldager is one of Billund Erhverv's many mentors, and as a serial entrepreneur he knows how important it is to get off to a good start.

In his time, Jørgen helped start up the wholesale company Agrometer, he has got Marmorline for Grindsted, he has run an art gallery both at home and in Blåvand, and then he has started a myriad of what he himself calls small projects.

"I have always had an interest in being curious about starting something new, and I recently made a small count," says Jørgen Guldager and continues: "I have been involved either as owner, part owner or member of the board of almost 20 companies.”

Jørgen Guldager calls himself an entrepreneurial type, and he wants to bring his entrepreneurial experience into play with new entrepreneurs, so that he can help them get started as best as possible.

"I think over time you acquire some ability to see if a business model can work, or if you just have to be a little careful," says Jørgen, who has also gotten off to a bad start himself. He says with a smile: "Yes, it has given you a hard time at times, but it is also a valuable experience that you can share. "

Billund Erhverv has 17 mentors attached, all of whom can guide new entrepreneurs and help them find their way around life as a self-employed person.
