At Danske Bank, we’re trying to improve the conditions these start-ups have through a number of initiatives. One way we’re doing this is by bringing out an annual insights report, which we have just published. In this report, we take the temperature of the ecosystem that the start-ups in the Nordic countries are operating within, and then we provide this ecosystem with a foundation for discussions that are based on facts rather than on assumptions.Klavs Hjorth
