Why a Copenhagen MatchUp?
Access to the global market for entertainment and functional solutions from the digital visual industry is both a gigantic opportunity for Danish entrepreneurs and gaming companies, but it is also a critical formula for success. Business models, consumer behaviors and technologies are constantly changing, requiring ever more development and investment.
As a Danish entrepreneur or SME, collaborations with the world’s largest media and technology companies as well as Danish and international investors are of great importance for them to be able to assert themselves in the international market.
Copenhagen MatchUp 2023 is organized by Vision Denmark in collaboration with Creative Denmark, Nordisk Games, Producentforeningen, Ghost Ship Games and Betadwarf. Vision Denmark’s work to promote innovation is supported by the Danish Board of Business Development and the EU Regional Fund.
