Lagertha is the trigger to create max multiplier effect

Lagertha is soon to become a digital innovative and collaborative platform bridging startups founded by women with globale industries and a hotspot for the industries to meet and collaborate on new sustainable solutions - organized in a strategic Ecosystem to avoid fragmentation in value chains. 


The world is becoming more and more complex, which tends to fragmentation in many kinds of value chains. To stay connected to both the problems and solutions requires a strong focus on collaboration between startups and global industries, but also on cross-industries collaboration. It is on that fundament Lagertha┬┤s Ecosystem was created.

We know that diversity creates better results. This applies to both Start Ups and large international companies where diversity often is 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 Incubator program is for entrepreneurial women. 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 corporate partners.


Women want to be involved in society, economics, business and innovation. Lagertha will raise  numbers of female entrepreneurs and new businesses. It is a self-reinforcing process that will create more value on all bottom lines in society.


It is fully recognized that diversity is a driver for impact innovation. Lagertha is a robust opportunity for industries as maritime, transport, logistics, energy, mining, automotive, Tech and finance to cooperate with startups facing the challenges in the new decade.


Women in general think and act differently concerning innovation, sustainability, diversity, technological solutions and environmental management. There is a great potential that new startups founded by women would act as external innovation partners.

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.

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.
