PRLog - Aug. 31, 2011 - KLAMPENBORG, Denmark -- Under the title “Go2Germany – 1st stop Hamburg” The Danish IT association (ITB), Hamburg@work and TBK Consult have announced two seminars on how Danish software companies can get started in Northern Germany.
Denmark is one of the smallest markets in the world. 0,39% of world demand for IT related products and services are generated by the Danish economy. Nevertheless Denmark has been the birthplace of quite a number of international software blockbusters. UNIRAS, Skype, SpamFighter, Microsoft Dynamics AX and NAV, SimCorp and CCI Europe have all grown out of this small market.
“Danish software companies must face the challenges of internationalisation very early in their life,” explains Hans Peter Bech, CEO of TBK Consult. “Germany, the 2nd largest IT market in the World, is right on our doorstep and hard to ignore. However Danish software companies need to find creative ways of bootstrapping their way into the German market, as they often do not have the resources to invest in a subsidiary with dedicated staff from the very beginning. The “Go2Germany – 1st stop Hamburg” is proving practical hints making the first steps.”
