Danske Bank looking forward to EY Entrepreneur Of The Year 2020

Kvadrat A/S, from mid-Jutland, has been named EY Entrepreneur Of The Year 2019 in Denmark, and will now represent Denmark at the EY World Entrepreneur Of The Year in Monaco in 2020, when more than 50 countries will battle for the title. Entrepreneur of the Year (EY) is the world’s largest competition for growth companies and Danske Bank is the competition’s new primary partner in Denmark.

Kvadrat is Europe’s leading supplier of technologically innovative and modern quality textiles, supplying architects, designers and private customers around the world. The company won the Danish part of the competition in front of five other strong regional winners.

Kvadrat combines a strong business sense with growth 

The title EY Entrepreneur Of The Year in Denmark is given to a company and its owners who manage to optimally combine a strong business sense with growth and development, and where the entrepreneur is a role model for the coming generation. Kvadrat is an incredibly exciting Danish company with impressive global reach and who I believe will attract a lot of attention in Monaco at the EY World Entrepreneur Of The Year in 2020.

An opportunity to listen and get close to growth companies

Being the new principal partner for EY Entrepreneur of the Year has been very exciting for Danske Bank. This first year has very much been a case of listening and learning and we look forward to the coming years, when we will be even more engaged and focused in our work with the competition. We are very pleased with the unique opportunity Entrepreneur Of The Year affords us to be visible locally and to get close to the many exciting companies that create growth for Denmark – an effort we very much respect, are keen to honour, and are also eager to support with the competences and experience we possess.
