Denmark is increasingly becoming one of Europe’s major startup hubs, specifically Copenhagen where some of the hottest startups in Silicon Valley have grown from. Yammer competitor Podio is making waves in the Valley and Zendesk just moved into brand new offices on Market and 4th street.

But these are all fairly new companies when Denmark has been influencing the technology industry for some time; Skype’s co-founder was Danish and the programming platform Rails was also born there.
