Denmark Offers New Service for Intl. Tech Delegations
March 2021, Copenhagen: Starting April 2021, the non-profit organisation, Digital Hub Denmark, is opening its doors to tech delegations from around the world to provide them with a matchmaking service into the Danish tech ecosystem. Backed by ministries, government agencies, and private organizations, Digital Hub Denmark will provide this service to stakeholders with a dedicated interest in collaborating with, procuring, or supporting Danish digital innovation.
“With this service, Denmark now has a one-stop-shop for international stakeholders looking to tap into our rising tech scene. Whether you are simply scouting the potential here for the first time, or ready to mature partnerships here, this service will provide the right connections and meetings,” says CEO of Digital Hub Denmark, Camilla Rygaard-Hjalsted.
With this new service, Digital Hub Denmark will become the national coordinator, handling incoming requests from international delegations and liaising with national and local stakeholders.
A new visitor centre in the heart of Copenhagen
Accompanying this new service, Digital Hub Denmark is opening a Visit Centre in central Copenhagen, only six kilometres from Copenhagen Airport. Right at the canals in the city centre, a spacious 750m2 centre is featuring an exhibition designed to introduce international stakeholders to both the pioneering legacy of Danish innovation and the buzzing startup scene that keeps growing in both impressive innovations and investments. Interactive designs will leave the delegations with an introduction to the abundance of opportunities on the Danish tech scene.
Digital Hub Denmark will screen incoming delegation requests, but once approved for the matchmaking service it is free of charge. This includes selecting stakeholders, booking meetings, and designing the visit programme. The delegations are only asked to provide travel and accommodation for themselves.
The delegation service is designed, however not restricted, to accommodate requests within three strongholds in Danish digital innovation: 1) eGovernance, 2) AI, Data and Ethics; and 3) The Danish startup ecosystems. Digital Hub Denmark is collaborating with leading companies, startups, experts, research, universities, and authorities within these areas.
Behind Digital Hub Denmark and its new delegations service is a variety of key actors from the national tech landscape: The Ministry of Industry, Business and Financial Affairs, Ministry of Foreign Affairs of Denmark, Ministry of Higher Education and Science Denmark, Confederation of Danish Industry, Danish Chamber of Commerce, Finance Denmark and The Danish Industry Foundation.
