Following the news in February that we were establishing our first foothold in continental Europe with the appointment of Mick Jelsdal Jørgensen and Sebastian Schröder (both pictured above) of Northern Equity Partners, based in Copenhagen, as Sales Agents operating in Scandinavia and Germany, we are delighed to announce the launch of a dedicated Danish website to further support this growth.
Fremad og opad! (That’s ‘onwards and upwards’ – I hope!)
With bases on both sides of the Atlantic from the start, BeThere Global is quite an unusual company. While our equipment is extremely portable and our operators regularly fly the world to webcast conferences, it has always been our intention to improve our offer to the global market by building relationships with agents and operators in countries other than the UK and USA. Not that we have any megalomaniacal desire for ‘world domination’; it’s just a wish to reduce the travel and shipping costs for our customers at the same time as building a more sustainable operation.
We are now delighted to announce our first foothold in continental Europe with the appointment of Northern Equity Partners, based in Copenhagen, as Sales Agents operating in Scandinavia and Germany.
Northern Equity Partners is run by Mick Jelsdal Jørgensen and Sebastian Schröder.
“When we first got in touch with BeThere Global we were fascinated by the concept of the company and its ability to capture and share knowledge.”
Both he and Mick saw a great opportunity to become a part of the team and build a BeThere Global division in Germany and Scandinavia.
“There is no doubt that it is a great opportunity to put years of academic training into practice. BeThere is able to record and broadcast any conference, anytime, anywhere in the world but our real strength is the personal relationships we have with our customers. We want to build on these relationships in Scandinavia and Germany.”
Mick was born and raised in Copenhagen and has a background in the financial sector. He holds a BSc in Business Administration from Roskilde University and is currently taking his MSc in Management of Innovation and Business Development at Copenhagen Business School.
Born in Berlin, Sebastian holds a BSc in Business Administration and Economics from the University of Passau in Germany and will graduate with an MSc from Copenhagen Business School this summer. His previous work experience includes movie production and financial services. Said Schröder…
“Our dream is to expand the business but keep the entrepreneurial spirit and high-level of innovation alive.”
