About us

Canute is created by entrepreneurs for entrepreneurs

Canute helps startups succeed globally. Our vision is to make the Nordic tech eco-system truly globalized. We empower tech founders to grow their companies in new markets - faster and better.

We empower tech founders to grow their companies in new markets - faster and better. We make useful connections and give you insights for your launch in markets that it would otherwise take you months to built.

We work in program-format, through digital platforms and do individual consulting. More than 60% of our alumni have successfully entered new markets. We have specialized our services in four key markets with major city eco-systems as focal point: London, Berlin, New York City, Stockholm. We cover areas such as fundraising, recruitment, legal and financial advice, PR, marketing, accelerators, offices and professional network.

Why be a Canute Partner?

Growth in new markets is a strong focus for our clients in Deloitte Fast Growing Companies. I think Canute is an amazing initiative for the Danish eco-system. Canute enables high-growth companies relevant insights and opportunity to connect to new networks when entering foreign markets.
