- Q: Should I sign up?
A: Yes! But you need to have a Danish CVR number. If you don’t have one already, we can help you.
- Q: Can I sign up for Danish Tech Challenge if I don’t have a hardware product?
A: Sorry, no! Danish Tech Challenge is only for companies with a hardware product.
- Q: How do you define hardware?
A: Anything that is not purely digital or a service.
- Q: Can I have a job while being in Danish Tech Challenge?
A: Yes you can, but at least one of the founders should be full-time in the company. Furthermore, we expect the relevant people in your team to attend our Thursday workshops – every Thursday. The topics shift, so you can take turns according to your roles and competencies within the team.
- Q: We’ve been working on our startup for a while, should we still sign up?
A: Yes, indeed.
- Q: We already have a working prototype – can we still sign up?
A: Yes! We both accommodate brand-new startups and ones with a bit more experience.
- Q: I’m a solo founder, can I sign up?
A: Yes, of course. However, if you get in, we’ll probably try to push you to get a co-founder. Because being on your own is tough. That being said, we’ve had several solo founders in the program who have performed really well.
