Diversity is key driver of innovation

We know that diversity creates better results. This applies to both Start Ups and large international companies where diversity lead to the road to better business development, innovation and survivability. Diversity means multiplicity and otherness. It adds resilience and matches the best of human beings.  

Vision og ambition

According to legend, LAGERTHA was a strong and independent Viking shield woman who fought for what she wanted and won many battles by daring to take the sword into her own hands.

Lagertha's Startup program is for start ups founded by female entrepreneurs and mixed teams because we believe diversity is the driver for innovation. At the same time, it serves as the driving force for Lagertha's vision and ambitions.


Lagertha aims to identify 36 startups from 2022 to 2024 and connect them with global industries. By 2022 Lagertha will scale to the European market in cooperation with our stakeholders.

Strengthening sustainability by open innovation

Lagerthas Ecosystem is developed and designed to support global industries to meet and collaborate on new sustainable solutions. Every concept services and Leadership Development Training program Lagertha offer is based on that goal and in close interaction with our stakeholders.

Lagertha is a robust opportunity for industries as maritime, automotive, energy, transport, logistics, mining, and technology to cooperate with startups facing the challenges in the new decade.


My investment in Lagertha is first and foremost an expression of my belief that Kate Maria Vinther with this company can make a difference with a business model for corporate venture & startups that understands the importance of interaction and commitment between stakeholders without friction, and which has a global and sustainable view. Lagertha will be the innovative platform of the future for women who want a professional and competent bridge to global industries and who have the ambitions in order. We need that, and I cannot imagine anyone better to lead this mission than Kate Maria Vinther.

I have known and worked with Kate for many years and she is in my optics one of the most committed and future oriented people I have met on my way. And at the same time, she possesses the ability to be holistic in complex change processes, understands the entire value chain and always focuses on the greatest possible benefit for her customers and partners. She is professional, responsible and without a doubt able to create new paths in different industries, environments and cultures. 

Katrine Rohde, Board of Directors & trusted advisor

I'm passionate about helping entrepreneurs - these are the bravest people I know and there are too few of them.

We must pay tribute to the diversity in all aspects of the Danish business community. A focus on getting entrepreneurs, and in particular women entrepreneurs, on stage and getting even more impetus in the process is an exciting journey that Lagertha has taken the initiative for. I am proud and at the same time humbled to be able to help Lagertha on this mission, and I look forward to seeing all the good results that we can create together.

Senior Director, Air & Sea IT. DSV

I fully support Lagertha's Start Up program, as I would very much like to help change the fact that there are still too few women applying into the industries that Lagertha focuses on. In order for us to exploit the potential of diversity, we must have more of the competencies that women can offer in games in these industries - and I believe that Lagertha's program and the team behind it have the energy, competencies and knowledge needed to help create change. That's why I - and we at Maersk - support their work. Lagertha has a unique business model.
