With the highest concentration of risk-willing venture capital in the world, entrepreneurs from around the globe come to Silicon Valley to explore the world's most innovative ecosystem. A unique growth mindset and a high concentration of talent are key element in Silicon Valley's capacity to develop and scale transformative technologies. 

Silicon Valley – Second to None

Silicon Valley is the undisputed epicenter of innovation and tech, nurtured by an entrepreneurial ecosystem like no other. The ecosystem consists of the world’s largest tech companies, an abundance of start-ups, a highly competitive investor landscape, and a strong business infrastructure of mentors, accelerators, business services and industry experts, as well as top-of-class universities and strong tech-transfer organizations anchored around these prominent institutions.

The high density of expertise, combined with a risk-taking mentality as well as a strong networking culture, provides the perfect environment for fostering creativity, innovation and growth, creating positive spillover effects for the ecosystem and society throughout.

Connecting Ecosystems – From Silicon Valley to Denmark and Back

In Denmark, we can be inspired by and learn from stronger and more experienced ecosystems such as Silicon Valley, where the willingness and capital to invest in start-ups with good ideas and growth potential are substantial.

We do this by collaborating with all aspects of the Danish ecosystem such as foundations, the entire business promotion infrastructure, cluster organizations, start-up communities, universities, tech transfer offices, corporate venture arms, NGO’s, philanthropists and many more. Through our comprehensive network, we support bridge-building to Silicon Valley for optimized value creation, acceleration and learning.
