About us

Canute is created by entrepreneurs for entrepreneurs

We help startups succeed internationally. Our vision is to make the Nordic tech ecosystem truly globalized.

We empower tech founders to grow their companies in new markets - faster and better.

Canute provides you with local connections and market knowledge to enable you for international success without having to waste months of work. Our services are specialized in five key markets for Nordic tech companies: The US, Germany, Sweden, The Netherlands, and The UK. We cover areas such as fundraising, recruitment, legal and financial advice, PR, marketing, accelerators, offices, and professional network.

Today, more than 70 % of our alumni startups have successfully entered new markets.

The team

Canute is run by a team of dedicated entrepreneurs.

In August 2023 we became a part of Thursday Consulting group and their team of +35 passionate professionals.

This means that we now have the ressources and capacity to not only help startups and scaleups with network and market knowledge on our programs but also their growth - and fundraising strategies before and after the programs.

Our consultants are all former founders themselves and have walked the talk when it comes to scaling internationally and fundraising from international investors - don't hesitate to reach out!
