Denmark is the 6th most digitally ready country in Europe

Denmark excels in e-leadership, digital infrastructure and the level of digital skills in the Digital Transformation Scoreboard 2018 by the European Commission.

Denmark has cemented its strong position in digital transformation performance. The country excels in areas such as e-leadership and digital infrastructure. This means that broadband penetration is strong, and software is widely used to share information and improve customer relations. Also, companies generally invest substantially in training of specialists and in upgrading ICT skills. This is complemented by an educational system that emphasises IT training.

Compared to 2016, Denmark has notably improved in the areas of ICT startup environment, entrepreneurial culture and investments and access to finance.

“Denmark is one of the most creative and innovative countries in Europe and has fostered global success companies such as Skype, Unity, Trustpilot, Zendesk, Momondo, JustEat and Vivino. Denmark is pushing a progressive digitisation agenda in the public sector and making data accessible for companies, which makes Greater Copenhagen a hub for innovative tech startups and smart city solutions”, says Claus Lønborg, CEO, Copenhagen Capacity.
