Copenhagen is experiencing a rising popularity amongst Fintech-companies.

Posted on Posted in Nyheder

The city of Copenhagen is developing its reputations as the Nordic nirvana for financial technology companies. Six foreign companies are currently contemplating moving some of their business to Copenhagen, as a result of an international campaign, which has been viewed more than 4 million times online. The digital advert campaign has been developed by Copenhagen capacity, in order to promote the high profile American fintech-conference Money 20/20, which brings about 5000 financial technology interested visitors to the city. Which hopefully instigates a possibility for relations with foreign fintech companies.

Five good reasons for starting a Fintech-company in Copenhagen.

  • Denmark is one of the world’s most digitized societies and constantly demands new digital solutions.
  • A minimal speech barrier because the danish people are really good at english. It is therefore possible for companies to recruit locally.
  • There exists a great respect for the environment, and new solutions won’t immediately be picked up by competitors.
  • The entrepreneurial environment is currently enduring a massive growth, which creates opportunities for startups and established companies.
  • Foreign companies view the strict danish financial regulations as a seal of approval of their product, a danish approval therefore serves as an indication for potential investors, that one’s business is kept in check.
