We are extremely excited to welcome Jyske Bank as our first Futurebox partner. Firstly, Jyske Bank will be able to provide crucial sparring for new startups in Futurebox, and at the same time, we believe that we can establish valuable collaborations between the high tech and hardware startups working in Futurebox and Jyske Bank’s customers,” explains Lone Gammelgaard Schwarz, Head of Futurebox.

Jyske Bank is also thrilled with the new partnership. Merete Friis, who is Branch Director at Jyske Bank, says

A good match is crucial for us. Not only the good match between Jyske Bank and the ambitious Futurebox startups, which we can offer sparring and advice. But also the good match between our customers and the startups is really interesting. We are seeing a huge demand from business owners who are keen to give something back to the entrepreneurial community. Either as direct investors or as mentors. We can now offer our customers more opportunities of this kind through our partnership with DTU Science Park and Futurebox.”
