Microsoft has partnered with Copenhagen Fintech to provide technology and advice to new fintech businesses in Denmark.
Microsoft experts will provide advice, mentoring and expertise on the latest technologies to encourage the development of startups in the area.
“We are trying to orchestrate an ecosystem and give lots of companies the best basis to grow, develop talent and skills, and therefore we are constantly looking for the best partners to do that,” said Thomas Krogh Jenson, CEO of Copenhagen Fintech. “That’s why this partnership with Microsoft as a global leading technology company is super important to us.”
“The Danish fintech ecosystem is among the leaders in Europe, and the industry is a major driver of growth, innovation and job creation,” said Jacob Engsig, financial service industry lead at Microsoft. “Both Microsoft and the financial sector can learn a lot from fintech companies, which are often extremely skilled at reimagining a specific part of the value chain, thereby contributing to some of the innovation that drives the financial sector forward.
“At Microsoft, in addition to our technological knowledge, we can contribute to building a bridge between the fintech companies of the future and the established players in our ecosystem, which include both partners and customers.”
