Startup Guide Copenhagen

With about 1.250.000 inhabitants, Copenhagen is no large city in global terms. But behold, there are many treasures to be found. As you get lost on cobblestone bridges, in cozy cafés or staring at yet another insolently stylish local passing by on the opposite side of a canal, you might just find yourself having fallen in love.

It only takes a bit more than half an hour to ride across the compact city of Copenhagen by bike. Thronged by fellow bikers, who collectively account for about 40 percent of all transportation, a committed route will unveil no less than 20 museums, 15 Michelin-starred restaurants, and a path sprinkled with trees, cerulean canals, slanted timbered houses in ochre and harbours flanked by public space in an intricate, exquisite design.

On this book:

“You hear all those stories about companies being built in zero time, but in fact they take a tremendously long time to build. And the key is that it is a journey and a learning exercise.”

Thomas Madsen-Mygdal , TwentyThree

“I want to have spent my life improving something significantly. I think that is an obligation we all have.”

Natasha Friis Saxberg , Atea
