About us

Welcome to the Consulate General of Denmark in Silicon Valley. The consulate encompasses Innovation Centre Denmark and aim to build bridges between Denmark and the U.S. to ensure a sustainable future.

Globalization and rapid technological development present new opportunities for growth. To continue to prosper, Denmark depends on the ability to build strong relationships with partners in the U.S. Furthermore, it is necessary for Denmark to expand trade and market access, to continue innovating, to be at the forefront of technological developments, to foster research collaboration and to attract knowledge and investments. We assist Denmark with those endeavors.
