The State of B2B Denmark Tech in 2019

When you think about the biggest tech or startup hubs in the world, Denmark may not be the first country to come to mind. 

The United States and Canada loom as two tech giants in the Western Hemisphere, and even in Europe, countries like Great Britain and France, with London and Paris, respectively, are more traditionally thought of for their tech scenes.

Denmark's Tech Scene

But the Danes have emerged as an up-and-coming market technology leader in recent years, even ranking No. 6 in The Global Entrepreneurship and Development Institute’s “Global Entrepreneurship Index.” This is particularly true in the business-to-business (B2B) scene, which is where G2 is most concerned.

At the heart of Denmark’s tech world is Copenhagen, the country’s capital and most populated city (its population of 750,000-plus people makes up a little more than 13 percent of Denmark’s total population of 5.7 million people). Of the 26 B2B software vendors on G2 with a headquarters location identified in Denmark, 18 are in the capital. Countless more vendors across our site list offices in Copenhagen as well.

Much has been written about the Copenhagen tech and startup scene in recent years and why it has grown so quickly. Business Insider wrote that “Denmark has the fastest growing startup scene in the Nordic region” due to “grassroots movements forming in recent years and mobilizing the community,” citing TechBBQ, a startup and innovation summit in the city. Founders, a Copenhagen-based company that has founded 12 companies since 2012, released a report in November 2018 that found that the past success (and money) of particular Nordic startups has fueled its current growth; in Copenhagen those companies include Zendesk and Tradeshift, both now headquartered in San Francisco.

With the tech scene on the rise, the Danish government has taken notice, with its Ministry of Business and Growth and the Ministry of Immigration, Integration and Housing co-leading Start-Up Denmark, which exists to drive entrepreneurs to the country and encourage tech growth.

Note: Only software vendors on G2 with headquarters currently in Denmark are included in graph.

With so much activity and growth in the Danish tech scene, we pulled together a list of the top-rated products on G2 with vendors headquartered in Denmark. The list below is ordered by user satisfaction, and to qualify, a product was required to have at least 10 verified user reviews.

For each product, we created a profile to give a snapshot of what it is and what it does, and to give some insight into the company behind it. All the data comes from G2.com (and our nearly 900,000 B2B software and services reviews), or from publicly available sources such as LinkedIn and Crunchbase. These Danish B2B companies are represented by verified reviews from real users across a variety of categories, from CRM to Project Management to Service Desk. Read more below about some of the companies playing a major role in Denmark’s bustling tech environment.
