My name is Jannik Lawaetz and I am the Chief Executive Officer and Co-Founder of LuggageHero. LuggageHero is a network of short-term luggage storage options in shops, cafes, hotels, and more. The idea is for travelers to no longer have to drag their luggage all over the city or hunt for the elusive storage locker, where they often need exact change in the right currency. LuggageHero has a growing network of +40 luggage storage sites in New York, London, Copenhagen, and many more major cities across Europe and North America.

We know how much it sucks having to drag your luggage around when you just want to explore a new destination and we want to make sure people no longer have to go through that.

2. ($18K/year)

Holger Sindbaek from Denmark started Online Solitaire almost 3 years ago, .

  • Country: Denmark
  • Revenue: $1,500/ month
  • Founders: 1
  • Employees: 0

Hello everybody! My name is Holger and I’m a designer-turned-developer from Denmark. In the last couple of years, I’ve been working on a solitaire gaming website called Online Solitaire, which features the most popular solitaire games such as Klondike, Spider, and Freecell.

The game itself has actually been somewhat of a side-hustle of mine for a while now. It initially started years back as a Mac app that was sold through the Mac App Store, where it earned around $800 a month.

After having made the app, I ended up going to New York to start a startup called Slang which was a marketplace for sneakers and streetwear, with a friend of mine. That venture effectively led me to have my solitaire app on a perpetual backburner. And after a few years of no maintenance, the app got so buggy it was eventually thrown off the app store.

We have now just launched our 4th product and have been in business for under 2 years. And as an added fun fact 2 out of 3 founders have had a baby this year (in the same week).

5. Start a social media marketing business ($96K/year)

Mahsun Avci from Denmark started Avci Media over 1 year ago, a social media marketing business.

  • Country: Denmark
  • Revenue: $8,000/ month
  • Starting Costs: $350
  • Founders: 1
  • Employees: 0

Hello, my name is Mahsun Avci! I'm the founder of Avci Media. At a fairly young age (15) I decided to start my own business. An online marketing agency, where we help businesses grow their bottom line through paid traffic and sales funnels. By taking a holistic approach to business, we make comprehensive online strategies that take our clients from their current situation to their desired situation.

Our vision is to become Denmark’s best boutique marketing agency, where entrepreneurs and ambitious businesses can come to us and grow their businesses to unimaginable heights.

At the time of writing this, I’m making around $8.000 pm and the goal for 2021 is to hit $175.000 in profit with my marketing agency.

My marketing agency changed my life because of the low cost of starting and the huge income potential. Client retainers range from $1,000 to $10,000 a month and there are many instances where I take a percentage of the added profits from my clients. Since the costs of a completely digital SMMA are incredibly low, most of that is profit. Also, unlike other agencies, I online focus on the core things that will move the boat forward and can help our clients get to their desired situation.

6. Start an air freshener business ($48K/year)

Henrik Toft Simonsen from Denmark started Mosspiration Biotech over 5 years ago, an air freshener business.

  • Country: Denmark
  • Revenue: $4,000/ month
  • Founders: 2
  • Employees: 3

Mosspiration Biotech engineer mosses to produce fragrances, either for home decorative products or for chemical used in the perfume industry. I, Henrik Toft Simonsen, is one of the two founders of the company.

During 2015, we, the two co-founders Henrik and Hansol acknowledged that forming a small biotech company would be a great solution for their many crazy ideas. Based on research performed first at University of Copenhagen and later at the Technical University of Denmark, we established Mosspiration Biotech, IVS in January 2016.

The Fragrant Moss was made as part of a research project between 2011 and 2014. It led a happy life in the petri-dishes until 2016, when the idea of the "Natural Air Freshener" was launched. We collaborated with creative people in San Francisco throughout 2017 to get this right. After several attempts, we now have more fragrant versions and with even stronger fragrances within several types of glass jars.
