After an inspirational trip to San Francisco in 1995 Mikkel launched what was one of Denmark’s first horizontal community portals. Less than a year later the portal was acquired and Mikkel founded Caput, a software company specializing in standard software components for community building and social networks. He then reunited with former friends and colleagues Morten and Alex with whom he founded Zendesk and launched it in October 2007.
Mikkel and Andy will be holding a fireside chat about their products' evolution and how they both went international.
