"Our US client base grew by 90% in 2016, making it our most successful year of international expansion. Danske Bank has been incredibly supportive, and we’re thankful for their partnership during this incredible journey."
Ulrik Bo Larsen, Founder & CEO, Falcon.io
"The challenges startups are facing often differ tremendously from those of companies with more established business models. Traditional banks rarely play a role in these challenges, but we have found that Danske Bank is challenging the traditional role of a bank, e.g. by facilitating introductions to investors and sparring on the business model."
Caspar Høgh, COO, Tattoodo
"As a growth startup we encounter all kinds of challenges, so it is important to have a bank that understands us and our business needs. Ever since we joined Danske Bank Growth, we have felt their support on every step of the way."

Despite reputation for strong gender equality, the Nordics has yet to see this crossover into the tech scene
According to the recently published report on investment gender diversity in the Nordics, the percentage of investments within the tech industry going to companies founded by females is surprisingly low.
The report is made by the Nordic Web, the number one resource for data-driven analysis on the Nordic tech and startup scene, and supported by Danske Bank.
