From handcart to global logistics company
Nowadays, we take cross-border trade for granted. But if you ask Anders Nielsen’s great-grandchild and great-great-grandchild, they will confirm it takes time, hard work and a great deal of ingenuity to transform a firm based on a handcart behind Valby Bakke into a global transport company.
As in the 1880s, entrepreneurs and startups are just as crucial now for innovation, productivity and growth in our society, says Martin Jes Iversen: “When looking at entrepreneurship, you cannot turn a blind eye to the financial aspects – as this is extremely critical for entrepreneurs.” For entrepreneurs, startup capital
is a necessary foundation for business development.
That is why Danske Bank, now as then, helps Nordic startups
and growth companies achieve their breakthrough, grow and increase their positive impact on society. It all starts with one person with a single idea – and a bank that supports the development of that idea with startup capital.
That is the way it was back then, and this is the way it is today.
