Hi, I’m Mads!

Helping great people succeed. That’s my passion.

Luckily it is also a big part of my day job as Venture Developer at People Ventures.

Here I provide hands-on assistance on various projects for a couple of our portfolio companies to help them fast forward. On top of that I am part of the team that scouts the Danish and Nordic market for interesting opportunities to invest in early stage tech startups looking to make a real difference to people and the world.

My background for doing all of this? I am a digital industry veteran with 20+ years of experience under my belt doing product, business development, business management and team leadership.

I have worked building products, market positions and businesses for companies such as Microsoft, TV 2 Denmark and Berlingske Media. I have been both a specialist and an executive. Feel free to check out my LinkedIn profile here and to connect with me.

By education I am originally a journalist from DMJX, which has proven to be a great fit for working and helping people in an industry, where the ability to ask questions, do research and reach a conclusion based on data and facts within short deadlines are the keys to success.

My writings here serve two purposes:

First and foremost as notes to myself about things I encounter, contemplate and somehow need to compute (and for me that works best through writing).

But also as little nuggets that can hopefully inspire you and get you thinking or doing more about whatever it is you’re passionate about.

I am an open, honest kind of guy always looking to connect with great, interesting people with something on their mind. Feel free to get in touch: mads(at)madsjvk.com
