179. From Denmark to Silicon Valley: Building Bridges for Innovation w/ Josefine Strandgaard & Allan

We're taking you on a virtual journey to Denmark, where innovation and collaboration are at the forefront. Our special guests today, Allan Kristensen and Josefine Strandgaard, are both part of the Innovation Center Denmark Silicon Valley, an organization that facilitates collaboration between Denmark and the US since 2006 as part of the Danish government's initiative to tap into the world's leading innovation hubs.

Today, the center has seven other locations worldwide, including Boston, Munich, Tel Aviv, India, South Korea, and Shanghai. The Silicon Valley office is the oldest and largest, with 14 people working to build bridges between science, education, and innovation for both scholars and Danish companies.

Their mission is to internationalize Danish education, science, and innovation.

We talk about introducing students to the startup mindset, incorporating education, business, and government, and how those lessons carry forward in other areas of life.
