Debate on tomorrows innovation

Denmark is a global frontrunner on making new start-ups.

However the success making the start-ups scale-ups needs improvement.

Too many start-ups stays small. How do we make them grow? Which mindset do we need? How do we dare to take more risks? How do we create the optimal conditions for investors and entrepreneurs to drive the growth agenda? Which responsibility do the established business communuty have?
