Getting to grips with Danish

Google Translate - the photo setting is especially helpful!

Duolinguo - get the basics before you start Danish school


Financial stuff

TransferWise - Might need this for things like rent before you get a Danish bank account - work out what you’re paying 

Mobile Pay - for paying people, bars, clubs etc


Ordering food

Wolt - Fresh outta Finland and just landed in Copenhagen

Just Eat - The Godfather of food delivery, founded right here in Copenhagen

Room service (web only)

Don't be surprised that you can't get food late in Copenhagen. If you're in a bind after 11 your best best is probably a hotdog from 7/11.


Rental sites

Here are some good places to start! 




Other options: — Denmark’s answer to e-Bay/ GumTree 


Official sites

E-boks - This is your official email inbox for anything official. Sign up using your Nem-ID for notices about taxes, payslips etc. You need to set this up yourself and make sure to check in regularly :)


Getting around

Rejseplanen - plan your journey! On the web and on mobile :)

About us

Founders is a startup studio based in lovely Copenhagen, Denmark. We partner with amazing entrepreneurs to build companies from zero to traction (or, idea-stage to product-market-fit).

We made this playbook based on what we've learned welcoming new desk mates, ping pong break pals and co-founders from 20+ nationalities to the Founders Family. Most of this info is already available, but it's scattered between a bunch of different sites and it can be hard to know where to start. We've pulled it all together in one place and thrown in our own recommendations so you can focus on your new job, life, adventure!

What did we miss?

Like any good guide, our playbook is a living document that we will constantly be updating. Something you want to see in here? Help us keep the content fresh and relevant by dropping us an email! :)

We made a takeaway pdf with all the answers and tips from each topic.
