DenmarkBridge – integrating innovative business
Being adaptable to change is crucial for corporations to survive in today’s business world, where new technologies and disruptive innovations persistently change the name of the game.
DenmarkBridge is a membership-driven initiative, consisting of Danish corporations with a shared interest in exploring the opportunities that flow from the ever-changing technological developments.
DenmarkBridge aims at bridging the gap between Danish companies and Silicon Valley, one of the world’s primary hotspots for technological innovations, by creating a community consisting of high-level strategic networking and knowledge sharing among like-minded business partners.
It is the network! The message is clear and war-stories are many to prove it. One of the overall success factors of Silicon Valley is the interconnectedness. Startups, academia, investors and seasoned executives are constantly discussing and sharing knowledge on opportunities and challenges in the business environment.
DenmarkBridge is a public-private non-profit initiative founded on the acknowledgement that strategic networking is a key ingredient in understanding, adapting and developing disruptive innovations. DenmarkBridge aims at bringing disruptive startups, investors and large corporations together across the Atlantic through strategic, high-level networking and knowledge sharing.
Many corporations have been blindsided by how quickly new technologies and innovations change their playing field. DenmarkBridge strives to knit close ties between Danish corporations and the disruptive environment of Silicon Valley with an eye to strengthening of Danish corporations’ ability to integrate emerging technologies into their business plans and scaling their businesses based on that. Moreover, DenmarkBridge aims at contributing to increased awareness in Silicon Valley of the Danish startup scene, supporting Danish startups and gaining access to international investors.
The foundation of DenmarkBridge is an inquisitive and collective mindset, where members seek to share experiences, learn from and connect with likeminded business partners. A.P. Møller – Maersk, Danske Bank, Dansk Industri (Confederation of Danish Industry), LEGO, Novo Nordisk and Vækstfonden (The Danish Growth Fund) established DenmarkBridge.
