Denmark’s startup ecosystem making headway 

According to StartupBlink, the country has surged into the top 20 in the world on its newly-published 2022 Global Startup Ecosystem Index 

Denmark’s startup environment seems to be blossoming these days – at least according to the startup ecosystem map and research center, StartupBlink.

The Danes jumped four spots compared to last year, landing in the 18th position overall, based on good industry scores in Hardware & IoT (10th), Ecommerce & Retail (13th) and Health (14th).

“The Denmark Startup Ecosystem is a regional Leader in innovation, ranked at number 18 globally, and shows a positive momentum of four spots since 2021. Denmark also ranks at number 10 for startups in Western Europe,” wrote StartupBlink.

CPH, Aarhus and Herning glee
Similarly, Copenhagen improved by eight positions to rank 53rd among cities in the world. 

Aarhus also made inroads, taking a healthy 15-spot jump into 213th place, while Herning took a mammoth 317-spot leap into 564th place.

Not all was rosy reading, however, as both Odense and Aalborg fell in the city rankings, by 32 and 10 spots respectively. Kolding, meanwhile, dropped out of the top 1,000 cities altogether.
