Program & Speakers at the "ICDK Lounge"
Cutting edge technology is not only being developed in Silicon Valley. New and exciting business models are being tested and deployed by new start-ups every single day globally. The World Cup Tech Challenge hosted by SV Forum and held at the Microsoft Campus in Mountain View is an excellent opportunity to gain insight in some of the technologies currently being developed all over the world. It also highlights that the battle of successful launches and landing venture capital is becoming still more hyper-competitive.
As of May 1st Jacob Hagemann is joining Innovation Center Denmark in Silicon Valley as Senior Commercial Advisor. We are very happy to welcome him to the center. Get to know our new colleague through this little Q&A:
In late June, Innovation Center Denmark will host the Danish Minister for Science, Technology and Innovation, Charlotte Sahl-Madsen, when she brings chancellors of the Danish universities on a study trip to Silicon Valley. The objective of this trip is to gather inspiration for how to advance the conditions for entrepreneurship at Danish universities.
These last weeks there has been a heavy debate amongst Danish entrepreneurs about the Danish conditions for entrepreneurship – Martin Thorborg’s fiery critique of the so-called entrepreneurship tax and the Gus Murray case being the most noticeable. Meanwhile, in Chile the government has taken a very different approach towards entrepreneurship – an ambitious project aiming to transform Chile into the entrepreneurship hub of Latin America.
