Start-up scout Valuer will put its expertise to work to connect Grundfos with global entrepreneurs to accelerate digital development in the company.

New talents, fresh ideas and quick connections are just part of the recipe for success when it comes to digital transformation. This is the background for Grundfos joining forces with Valuer, a digital platform specialized in connecting large corporations with small start-ups across the globe.

“Connecting with new people and startups, getting new and updated knowledge is fundamental to our business,” says Fredrik Östbye, Group Vice President and Head of Digital Transformation at Grundfos.

“We see great potential in cooperating with Valuer to accelerate our digital transformation.”

Östbye highlights data analytics and data management as interesting areas that could gain further traction from this partnership.

Part of what makes Valuer unique is its method to scout the global start-up market with a vast network of agents on the ground who scout and recommend interesting entrepreneurs.  Valuer then matchmakes these entrepreneurs with its corporate partners.

“Partnering with Grundfos is a very interesting opportunity for us. We can offer an innovative approach to corporate to start-up matchmaking, and with Grundfos as one of our partners, we can attract even more attention and goodwill from entrepreneurs and the opportunity to cooperate and grow through Grundfos,” adds Dennis Poulsen, CEO Valuer.
