DXTR-Tactile opens daughter company in Silicon Valley

Danish edugaming producer opens daughter company in Silicon Valley after attending SCALEit, an innovation programme for start-ups and SMEs, during which they were introduced to Silicon Valley's eco-system.


DXTR-Tactile has invented an edu-gaming product which is an interactive building brick that supports learning and education of children via app-based games.

During the five-day SCALEit-programme, which is organised by Innovation Centre Denmark, Silicon Valley, DXTR-Tactile got the opportunity to pitch their product to relevant business partners and got introduced to valuable network.

The CEO, Ken Madsen explains, "The best part of being in Silicon Valley is the open-minded attitude which makes you feel welcome and part of the scene. For us Silicon Valley is the best entrance to the global market.The workshops, assessments, meetings and introductions to the entire eco-system which we received as part of the SCALEit program opened doors for us, not only to the Silicon Valley network, but also to mentors, who supported us further. My advise to other start-ups is to go global. You don't have to wait and first grow stronger at home in Denmark. In 2015 everybody is 'born global'".

DXTR-Tactile recruited their global sales director via SCALEit's mentor network and decided to open a daughter company in Silicon Valley after attending SCALEit in 2015.
