Launch of Copenhagen Fintech Lab

More than 150 people from the ecosystem in Denmark made it to Christianshavn today to participate in the grand opening of Fintech – Scandinavia’s first co-working space dedicated to fintech entrepreneurs.

The Minister for Business and Growth Troels Lund Poulsen and the Mayor of Employment and Integration Anna Mee Allerslev both gave very passionate speeches about the importance of growing the fintech ecosystem in Denmark and Copenhagen.

The director of Global Ecosystem Development (at Startupbootcamp) Elizabeth Lumley gave a very personal speech on the real impact of fintech and how it will help us make society more inclusive.

Copenhagen Fintech is a joint initiative by the Financial Services Union Denmark, the City of Copenhagen, the Danish Bankers Association and many more visionary partners and sponsors.

Our ambition is to create a one-of-a-kind place, where we bring together well-established fintech startups and new ones, so they can learn from each other. We want to create a platform for co-creation, new partnerships and co-development that will fuel creative innovation, exploiting synergies cross companies and speeds up time-to-market.

At the same time we also launched our new profile video of the lab including interviews with the many startups.

As you can see from the video, we have an awesome location at the heart of Copenhagen and if your fintech startup is looking for a home we should talk. So do not hesitate to contact us: [email protected] or +45 22 96 18 22.
