A webshop from Århus, Cleanskin.dk, is aiming european markets with risk capital from angel investors Casper Ravn-Sørensen and Mads Emil Fast Dahlerup.
Now it seems like those modest conditions he had as a young entrepreneur are far far away while he is sitting in his more than spacious office in Bredgade, Copenhagen. But it’s not more than 10 years ago when Casper Ravn-Sørensen came to Copenhagen with nothing more than his passion.
»It is essential for me to give the young entrepreneurs the possibilities for capital, connections and the access to skills I never had have« says Casper Ravn-Sørensen.
Casper Ravn-Sørensen and his partner in the investment company Dotcom Capital, Mads Fast Dahlerup, have invested in the webshop from Århus, Cleanskin.dk on the 1st of March. The shop is now making 5 million DKK per year – and has surplus. The potential is incredibly big, says Casper Ravn-Sørensen.
Christian Leth, the co-founder and CTO in Cleanskin.dk says:
»We were looking for a loan since we had an urgent capital requirement. We went to Copenhagen and met Casper and Mads that would rather be co-owners of the company. We thought it was a good idea and we would also rather have them as co-owners than just some people whose money we borrowed. They have a big background and they made some pretty good results. «
The money given to Cleanskin.dk made it possible for them to buy the stock products and invest in the technology that was needed. But also provided good marketing in Denmark.
Where is Clearskin.dk now, after a year?
»We are on the market in the whole Europe with a new brand and a whole new platform« says Christian Leth from Cleanskin.dk and explains that the ambitious growth strategy wouldn’t be possible without their partnership with Casper Ravn-Sørensen and Mads Fast Dahlerup.
»We got access to alternatives that we never would have encounter«
Casper Ravn-Sørensen would like to keep in touch with other entrepreneurs that understand the idea of the “smart money”. You can read more on Dotcom Captials and follow Casper Ravn Sørensen on his blog.
