Thanks to the Digital Tech Summit, we have made significant progress in our mission to develop an AI-based digital platform that supports, unites, and promotes the Nordic startup ecosystem. We are deeply grateful for both an initiative like the Digital Tech Summit and for Roskilde University, from which we are a spin-out, for their invaluable support and contribution to our journey. Specifically, the Digital Tech Summit 2023 has been a catalyst for three new partnerships for us.
Alfred Birkegaard, PhD & CEO and co-founder of THIRDROOM
I am excited to attend Digital Tech Summit to broaden my perspective on the dynamic world of start-ups and innovation. This initiative serves as an open invitation for entrepreneurs to connect and engage with tech innovation hubs and start-ups within Danish universities. In today's fast-paced landscape, fostering cross-disciplinary collaboration and nurturing robust ecosystems are critical factors in the journey towards building successful start-ups.
Hans Øllgaard Grevsen, Founder of Unmute Greetings
As someone new to Denmark, DTU, and the world of building startups, presenting my startup idea within a 3-minute window at the Digital Tech Summit, proved to be one of the most impactful moments of my life. I had the opportunity to engage in face-to-face discussions with individuals, whom I would typically not have had access to. These meetings significantly influenced my future research direction and broadened the horizons of my startup journey. The environment fostered at the Digital Tech Summit —where connections are made, communities are built, and collaboration is encouraged— might be a perfect example of a distinctively Danish approach.

By highlighting current market opportunities and providing resources, companies can offer a stepping stone that can turn students into successful entrepreneurs much faster. To succeed in this interaction, it is important to also lift up national entrepreneurship initiatives, where universities collaborate and learn from each other to create better opportunities for researchers, students and startups.
