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.
