Alliance VC expands to Denmark, Stine Mølgaard Sørensen joins as partner
Stine Mølgaard Sørensen, a Danish entrepreneur and angel investor, is joining Alliance VC as partner. Stine is based in Copenhagen, Denmark and was co-founder and COO of the health-tech startup Radiobotics and is an experienced angel investor and startup board member.
“We are very happy that Stine is joining Alliance VC, significantly strengthening our ability to support Danish founders and invest in Danish startups. At Alliance VC we believe early-stage investing is best done by experienced professionals with strong local networks. Stine is a perfect fit with our view of a great partner.”, says Johan Gjesdahl, managing partner Alliance VC.
In the last fifteen years the Nordics have been home to many great startups, including Spotify and Klarna in Sweden, Zendesk and Pleo in Denmark, Kahoot and Sanity in Norway, and Supercell and Wolt in Finland and many, many more. We strongly believe that Nordic founders will continue to build even more impactful startups over the next fifteen years.
At Alliance VC we like to invest across the Nordics, as startups in Sweden, Norway, Finland and Denmark complement each other with relative strengths across sectors such as climate and sustainability, business efficiency/SaaS, health tech, fintech, and consumer services.
While there are advantages to investing across the Nordics instead of in only one country, early-stage investing requires local knowledge and networks. Therefore Alliance VC’s strategy is to have partners in each major Nordic ecosystem to be able to identify interesting startups and be a true partner to founders.
“Denmark is the home of many great startups, and therefore it is a natural part of our Nordic expansion to have a partner in Denmark. With Stine Mølgaard Sørensen on our team, Alliance VC will be a truly Nordic fund with presence in Norway, Sweden, Finland, and Denmark” says Johan Gjesdahl.
“Joining Alliance VC is a huge opportunity to be able to influence future investments in both Danish and Nordic startups. I believe that through innovation and entrepreneurship, we can help put the Nordics on the global agenda and at the same time solve difficult societal challenges. I’m looking forward to working with great founders”, says Stine Mølgaard Sørensen, partner Alliance.
With Stine joining the team, there has been no better time for founders seeking capital, especially based in Denmark and southern Sweden, to reach out to Alliance VC and set up a call!
