DENMARK: Danisco Venture invests in DTU Invest
Danisco Venture and six other Danish companies with internal venture departments have made a commitment to each invest DKK 10 million in DTU Invest. The company has been formed by the DTU (the Technical University of Denmark), the Danish Technological Institute and the Danish Science Park, Hørsholm, and it has an overriding goal to ensure that ideas, patents and projects from DTU Invest and others serve as building blocks for new business. Procuring contacts and contributing venture capital are essential elements in this process. Some of the key areas for DTU Invest are biotechnology and foods. The three founding organisations combined will invest DKK 15 million so that the overall capital infusion will total DKK 85 million.
