Business Minister Brian Mikkelsen:
“The government will strengthen Denmark as a production and innovation country. The accelerated technological development means that our innovative companies will soon be on the market with their new solutions. Otherwise, they will be overtaken by global competitors. This is especially true for providers of new digital solutions where development is extremely fast. This can help the Market Fund. “
