"Getting valuable feedback from other talented entrepreneurs, really helped us focus on taking our product to the next level. On top of that the people from the highest levels of Danish finance and tech that we were able to add into our personal network will be extremely important for our future."
Tegan Spinner, CEO & Founder at Lokalist
"We had a great time participating in the incubation program. The idea of letting us co-create the program worked really well. We started with just an idea, and now three months later we are live with a product, happy customers and we have raised our first round of investment. The incubation program was a huge help getting this first traction. Thanks a lot!"

Meet our first batch startups in the program
Max & Lars were among the first entrepreneurs to ever join the lab when we were just getting started in 2016 with a startup that scaled to over 45 people. They came back & joined our incubation program this time with a new startup to solve a problem they painfully discoverred with their last startup - debt collection. Determined to help companies be smart in how they prevent and deal with debt collection, Max & Lars built a great product, got investment, ran collection cases for small customers, created several strategic partnerships and started multiple pilot projects with large customers.

Benjamin took the leap from Nordea to entrepreneurship as he joined our incubation program. Benjamin brought a clear vision for how to bring greater transparency to enable smarter decisions within the world of crypto. Combining that vision with the technical ability to build a product that can actually deliver on that promise especially impressed the blockchain experts in our community. Beneath Crypto is founded on a mission to provide facts and sober insights about value and risks in the decentralised economy. Through the program Benjamin validated the customer need, built his product, defined a business model and geared up for launch. Visit the website & see for yourself at Beneathcrypto.com
