Muninsight

Customer demand has made us focus on the US energy market. And due to customers arriving from other parts of Northern Europe, we no longer focus solely on Danish customers. For those reasons, the name Boston Denmark Partnerships no longer applies, and so we have a new website: Muninsight

Danske vindmøller en god forretning for amerikansk by nær Boston

Malcolm Brown er en pensioneret professor i oldtidskundskab og en stor fan af Johan Nicolai Madvig. Som medlem af byrådets elektricitetsudvalg i Hull, lige uden for Boston, USA, var han en hovedperson bag installeringen af den første vindmølle på den amerikanske østkyst i 2001. Det drejer sig om en 0,66MW Vestas turbine, og Brown dokumenterer regelmæssigt dens produktion af kWh siden da på hjemmesiden http://hullwind.org.

En morsingbo i USA

 

Palle Pedersen er en morsingbo, der efter at have læst på DTU rykkede teltpælene op og flyttede til Boston. Her blev han gift og fik børn, og han har siden været med til at starte ca. et nyt firma hvert år. Han har derfor masser af erfaring med hvad der kan gå godt og hvad der kan gå galt. Det er nok især det sidste man kan lære noget af.

Hvor skal et dansk startup firma slå sig ned, hvis det vil ind på markedet i USA?

Etablering af et firma i USA byder på et stort udvalg af byer. Man skal nok gøre sig flest tanker om hvor salgskanalerne er i ens egen branche, om det så er IT, biotek, medical devices, eller andet. Hvor kan man rekruttere, hvor finder man distributører og andre partnere. Der er en del information online, men det er ikke beregnet på danske firmaer. Der er en del kulturelle forskelle mellem Danmark og USA som danskere ofte undervurderer, da de jo taler sproget og som regel har set mange tusinde timers amerikansk fjernsyn. Hvorimod Kina, f.eks., klart forekommer fremmed, forekommer USA hjemmevant. Men det er måske netop faren. Prøv f.eks. at læse amerikanske curriculum vitae!

Hvad kan Danmark lære af britiske start-up firmaer?

Denne artikel, www.economist.com/node/21525430, undersøger, hvorfor store IT-firmaer er amerikanske og ikke britiske, og hvad der kan gøres, set ud fra en britisk synsvinkel. Og da Storbritannien ligner Danmark meget i denne sammenhæng, er artiklen også interessant for dem, der ønsker at forstå danske startup-virksomheders situation.

VC legal exposure

A federal appeals court recently handed down a chilling reminder of the risks inherent in failing to address conflicts of interest and process issues in distressed venture capital and private equity financings. In CDX Liquidating Trust v. Venrock Associates, No. 10-1953 (March 29, 2011), the U.S. Court of Appeals for the Seventh Circuit reversed a defense judgment and sent the case back for retrial, reviving the VC directors’ exposure to fiduciary duty liability and their funds’ exposure to aiding and abetting liability.
