The Danish Startup Bible 2022

Getting savvy with the Danish ecosystem

The Danish startup scene is no longer just geeks from the core of startup land sharing tips, networking and having fun with the dream of building an app that could make it big over there. Today, tech startups have become a viable career path with their own success stories and rock stars. A regular industry that employs thousands of people, attracts billion-dollar investments from all over the world and has become so mature and independent that it has fostered 10 unicorns.

But of course, that does not mean we are there yet. It is ingrained in human nature, and maybe even more so in the startup ecosystem; we’re not going home, we’re moving on!

Let us discover new technologies, business models and methodologies. Make new connections with established industry, nourish the relationships with our neighbouring ecosystems in the Nordics and build new bridges to the most exciting communities across the globe. The Danish ecosystem has come a long way, but has never done so alone – not yesterday, not today, not tomorrow.

As the journey of discovery continues, we urge everyone to follow it closely. Startups are a study in applied future – for the individual as well as for society as a whole. It allows us all a glimpse of what is to come.

And this is essentially what this publication is all about: enhancing the exploration by showcasing some of the highlights from the Danish ecosystem right now. Enjoy!
