Founder House: Our New Address in Copenhagen

Founder House: Our New Address in Copenhagen

The Danish startup scene is getting more exciting by the day, and you’d only have to look at a few success stories such as that of Just Eat, Vivino and TrustPilot.

 

According to Suzanne Bearne of The Guardian

The Danish startup scene, which has a focus on business-to-business enterprise, is certainly attracting the attention of investors. In 2015, The Nordic Web tracked 65 investments worth $273.5m (£192.2m) in Danish startups – up from 38 in 2014.

Edmund Ingham of Forbes writes:

“The Nordic States have already raised more than $1bn of VC funding for startups this year and are on course to  make it $2bn by the end of the year . More than 200 investments have been made, and the final figure could be close to 280 if current growth trends continue, a 113% increase on the previous year.”

You can’t miss this kind of action, can you?

 

We, at Kalpavruksh, always believed in moving fast. Being a technology company, we are often forced to change, anyway. We didn’t want to be unapproachable and sit behind glass walls. We wanted to reach out, to connect, and to make a difference.

 

So, we moved.

 

Now, moving locations is of two kinds – the kind of moving you do when you can’t have enough of one place and you look forward to the new place and then the kind of moving that you are very excited about.

Our move is of the second kind. We shifted our office from our previous Copenhagen location to the Founder House.

The reason we did that is because we wanted to engage – knees deep – with the thriving startup community and help build relationships, help provide support to startups while they try to scale up their businesses.

 

Founder House is a shared workspace community for select ambitions and scalable startups. At the time of this writing, they already house some 100+ startups ever since they started they opened the first tech space in Copenhagen, Circa 2011.

 

Founder House provides for affordable housing for developers, designers, and tech entrepreneurs. It’s more than just a place to live though – it’s a tight-knit community of ambitious, hustling, and resourceful entrepreneurs and innovators who work together to start awesome businesses.

 

Those who aren’t entrepreneurs get better jobs, rub shoulders with a thriving bunch of entrepreneurs, or just get to learn about new and exciting businesses or technological strides.

 

Most of these startups have quickly grown bigger or were acquired by larger businesses.

 

Founders House is also a vibrant community of entrepreneurs that hosts events featuring entrepreneurs, businesses, investors, and others quickly growing to be an exemplary innovation hub where technology meets business, and then flourishes.

 

Our spanking new Founder house location is run and managed by Vipul Makasare – a result-oriented sales & marketing veteran with more than 12+ years of experience in International sales and marketing specializing in IT and related services.

 

Vipul is a hunter but also doubles up with the “farming” mindset – a skill that blends today’s profit-seeking rush with tomorrow’s potential to deliver. Vipul specializes in new business development, market penetration, large account management, mergers, acquisitions, and a lot more.

 

Vipul, in short, is the right man to manage operations at Founder House bringing Kalpavuksh’s vast expertise in human resources, technology, and related services to the hungry crowd that needs it.

 

We are excited about moving location to the Founder House and we look forward to making a difference to a thriving startup community with innovators, technology enthusiasts, and entrepreneurs in tow.

 

Hoping to provide the best of what we can do a community that wants to make a difference to the rest of the world, we couldn’t have asked for more.
