After a handful of notable exits including Just-Eat and Zendesk, Danish tech companies are starting to gain serious traction with investors.
“It’s not Silicon Valley yet and I don’t think it should be,” say Martin Ferro-Thomsen, founder and CEO of Danish online conference hub Conferize. “The Nordic scene is starting to emerge as a major hub. We have all this talent, startup knowledge and technologies within a very small geographic area. It’s a little-known fact that five of the 10 most-used programming languages were created by Danes. Most people don’t know that, but I think we should be much better at celebrating the achievements we’ve made so far.”
