Increasing demand for collaboration across universities and a wish for a social and professional network led Venture Cup Denmark to establish the Danish University Entrepreneurship Network (DUEN).
With support from the Otto Mønsteds Foundation, this network is invited to Barcelona for a networking trip with a program full of inspiration and networking opportunities.
“We are very thankful that the Otto Mønsted Foundation has granted financial support to our university entrepreneurship network trip to Barcelona. The trip will act as a catalyst to bring the network together and inspire more collaboration going forward”, Morten Ugelvig Andersen, CEO of Venture Cup Denmark.
In 2022, Venture Cup Denmark officially established the Danish University Entrepreneurship Network in order to facilitate events for employees at the Danish universities across the country. We recognise that the entrepreneurial hubs at the universities are vital players in the Danish startup ecosystem and that the employees could benefit from having a more established network. The Otto Mønsteds Foundation ia thus supporting one of Venture Cup Denmark’s most important missions – strengthening relationships and collaboration between the Danish universities.
This network is also part of Venture Cup Denmark’s ambition to strengthen collaboration and interdisciplinary startups across universities and across professions. To Venture Cup Denmark this is an important part of our mission #supportingfounders of startups.
During the visit to Barcelona, participats will explore the Catalonian startup ecosystem and spend a day at the EU-startups summit together with representatives from all the Danish member universities.
Thanks to the Otto Mønsted Foundation for the sponsorship and to all the Danish universities for supporting the network and the visit to Barcelona.
