Hi, I'm Jesper, co-founder and product director at Conferize. Follow me or message me to connect.
Focussing on easing the distance between information and people looking for it, I’ve spend the past 15 years working with journalism and media, and communications and digital design.
A university background in Philosophy and Modern Culture in Copenhagen turned into cultural journalism and entrepreneurship within film, music, urban culture and emerging technologies. The past 10 years focussing on interaction design, concept development and product management. Partly in an agency working with clients like iTunes, Volkswagen, MetroXpress, SonyEricsson, Adidas, Creative, Coca-Cola, Stimorol, Heineken, Tuborg, DSB and Movia, and with festivals such as Roskilde Festival, Distortion Festival and Copenhagen Jazz Festival. And since 2012 full time with my own international startup Conferize.
Besides my work within digital design I’ve been engaged with organizing events like the music and tech exploration workshops HackBeat, the Copenhagen edition of PechaKucha and running the experimental blog Drone Graffiti documenting occurrences of the emerging drone technology.
I’m a curious and creative spirit, enjoying the digital expansion of the world, and being part of shaping it.

We've left 'beta' and entered V1. We've also moved into the Startup Village at Founders House. Let's get together to celebrate! Schmooze with the leaders of events & tech and meet the handsome Conferize team.
We are super excited to share the news about our new baby: Conferize V1. It was born out of our passion for taking events firmly into the digital age.
We asked ourselves:
1. How can we advance the relevance of physical meetings in the digital age?
2. How can online event communities create value in the real world?
Conferize V1 is created to realize the full potential of both worlds.
On this evening we'll be sharing the story of how Conferize has evolved until today; how it helps event organizers, attendees and speakers create more value around events. And we'll be teaming up with experts and leaders in the industry to explore the future of events. Finally, we'll ask for your help with a very important matter :)
Space is limited, so please only click I'm Attending if you're sure you'll be coming. There will be food and drinks, so please show up at 17.00 so you won't miss the good stuff.
