Launchpad for tomorrow’s businesses

In our co-lab we bring together people with diverse backgrounds to catalyze innovation through collaboration. Currently our Copenhagen co-lab hosts corporate innovation teams, entrepreneurs and venture investors using the unique setting to incubate and launch their next business.

Catalyzing innovation

We have gathered a unique group of entrepreneurs, investors and corporate teams to catalyze their innovations and build their ventures through collaboration.
The co-lab offers a free space for our corporate clients and by-invitation-only entrepreneurs and selected investors. Because the value of a thriving ecosystem is higher than the price of a desk.

Launching new busineeses

The co-lab is a sand-box for exploring and understanding how new technologies affect the world around us – and to collaborate while getting things done.
The collaborative work space is curated to the highest professional standards making it a perfect launch-pad for big bets and tomorrow’s winning businesses.
