“Sponsoring Venture Cup Denmark gives us the opportunity to promote one of the Foundation’s focus areas, namely supporting sustainable energy. At the same time, we help support startups – especially in the energy field. It is important for the entrepreneurs to feel support from outside, and it is important for us to support because startups are pioneers in future energy development,” says Hans-Henrik Eriksen, chairman of the board of Vissing Fonden.By supporting the National Startup Competition, the foundation is also supporting Venture Cup Denmark’s mission to help startups and founders commercialize their knowledge-based startups and promising university projects. This competition is a unique platform that allows startups to pitch, learn and grow in the process of developing and scaling their R&D into impact startups and companies.
