“When we were to decide where to locate our European HQ, Denmark was an obvious choice due to the already strong biotech cluster with its large pool of highly talented and motivated scientists and the special Danish way of working; combining dedication, flexibility and independency.
In addition, the central location in northern Europe with good infrastructure and easy access to the rest of Europe also contributed to the final choice. Last but definitely not least did the easy and very quick procedure for establishing a business in Denmark assure us that Denmark was the right choice for our company. We were really pleased with how everything from registration to international corporate banking swiftly was arranged at minimal costs.”
- Mr Peter Halkjaer-Knudsen, Executive Director, Business Development, Shanghai ChemPartner Co. Ltd.
