Scanex Venture are interested in cooperating with companies who have a disruptive business model, have established a clear market need for their products and demonstrated the efficacy of their value proposition in the marketplace in Denmark and possibly other Euro markets.
Our deepest connections are in the tech, biotech and bio-pharma sectors but having said that we am already engaged in building bridges for two other Danish companies which happen to fall in other sectors, but where I have relevant introductions to make.
Another exception could be an earlier stage company where the product is so innovative that I am able to get the serious attention of people in my network.Gary Wenet

De deltagende virksomheder afgør efter de gennemførte interviews – om de ser muligheder/merværdi i at følge op med en 2-3 måneders konsulentaftale med Gary Wenet, som omfatter forberedelse, deltagelse i introduktionsmøder og etablering af samarbejdsaftaler med US strategiske partnere, salgskanaler (evt. etablering af datterselskab) – samt inddragning af venture kapital investorer.
