Denmark created a diplomatic post to interact with large tech companies in 2017. The world’s first ambassador to the tech industry is a seasoned diplomat who previously led crisis management efforts in Kosovo, and in Afghanistan. As part of the Copenhagen 150 this year I’ll be meeting him tonight for Q&A. Curious to hear more.
Denmark appointed him to approach Silicon Valley as if it were a global superpower. His challenges show how smaller countries struggle to influence giant corporations.
