The last week of November a small Danish sound delegation went to Silicon Valley to talk about ‘How American companies can benefit from working with Denmark – the European capital of Sound Technology’.

The delegation included Professor Dorte Hammershøi, AAU, Professor Torsten Dau, DTU, Invest in Denmark and Danish Sound Network. The 2-day program included meetings at Facebook, Google, Apple, a talk at Stanford University by Torsten Dau and an “invite only” ’roundtable meeting’ held at the Innovation Centre Denmark in Palo Alto with participation from Logic Tech, Meyer Sound, Polycom, Oculus VR, Amazon, Sonos, Roku, EmbodyVR and Turtle Beach.

The topics were Personal Sound, Hearing Health and Hearing Rehabilitation.

The response was great and it is clear that Danish Sound is a well-known and respected brand in the US. The majority of the companies we met showed a great interest in finding ways to collaborate with Danish partners. Invest in Denmark and Danish Sound Network will follow up on the different inputs we got from the two days in Silicon Valley.
