Who are we?
Pioneers in the university
startup ecosystem in
Venture Cup Danmark got founded in 2000 as one of the first entrepreneurial organisations in the country. Since 2014, we have been supported by Hempel Foundation in order to build our own mentor program. We have done that successfully, connecting more than 578 mentors with 489 startups. However, as we have discovered the complexity of the startup ecosystem and the vast programs, events, competitions and much more that exist for startups, we found a more sustainable approach.
From February 2020, based on our 6 years of experience, our pool of experts, mentors and judges, all assembled under the new brand “Venture Cup Experts” will hereon get a sole point of access to all relevant activities that take place at the universities, their innovation hubs and of course Venture Cup-related courses, workshops, programs and events.
What you get?
How we do?
Venture Cup Experts will bridge the gap between the experts from the various industries and the exciting teams at the universities. So, regardless if you want to mentor or judge some of the startup teams, we will give you an complete overview and help you get engaged.
A fast growing early-stage startup community!
