On May 19, AmCham Denmark, in partnership with Copenhagen Capacity, invited AmCham members to a discussion on how businesses can collaborate with innovative startups.  The event was hosted by the create startup lab Rainmaking Loft.

Firstly Danske Bank's Head of Business Innovation Klavs Hjort shared insights on how the bank had initiated a new Nordic platform to attract startups and provided resources for them in their daily management. He underlined the importance of corporate heads to understand the startup scene and the ecosystem in which they operate in order to gain value of small innovative companies-in-the-making. 

Angel Investor Tommy Ahlers shared his own professional experience of the process of building a startup from the bottom to being acquired by a corporation. He highlighted the importance of corporations looking to startups to get a full grasp of the startup's DNA - otherwise the match may prove wrong. He also urged innovators to not only share their successes but also their failures - as failure and multiple tests are essential for obtaining success in the first place.
