Confidence in politicians is at an all-time low. The public does not feel represented by our country’s leaders and feel that they make decisions that show they don’t understand what it’s like to live an ordinary life outside of politics. I think this is a democratic crisis and politicians need to do something about it.
As a leader, you are responsible for gaining the support of the people behind you. You have to show that you are worthy of their trust and you have to take the lead to show that you have their best interests in mind. As a politician, it is impossible to make everyone happy, but a responsible politician must be responsive to public sentiment.
Located centrally in downtown Copenhagen along the picturesque canal Gammel Strand and a stone’s throw away from the Stock Exchange and Parliament, the café serves as a casual place for meetups, meetings or somewhere to work. The café is part of the Matrikel1 coworking and entrepreneurial community of creatives, tech experts, entrepreneurs and founders.
“Beware, you might run into other founders and entrepreneurs while you’re here!” jokes Jonas Fancony, General Manager of Matrikel1. “The café is an extension of our coworking community here at Matrikel1. Our mission with the café is to create a space where entrepreneurs can meet and collaborate whether they are members of Matrikel1, or part of the wider entrepreneurial ecosystem.”
However, the café is not just aimed at an entrepreneurial audience. Other Copenhagen visitors and residents, alike, are more than welcome.
Founded by Mats Mathisen and Arnstein J. Syltern in 2013, DIGS was an early mover, and one of the original coworking spaces in Norway. The strong community, of tech companies and founders at DIGS, enjoys a solid local position which we are happy to become a part of. This move is further strengthened by our shared values with Mats and Arnstein, who will remain on site and continue running DIGS and our Trondheim operations.
“Trondheim is the tech capital of Norway and we want to be a part of the ecosystem there. DIGS is the leading coworking and innovation space in Trondheim and this merger is an important move to integrate even more creators in the Nordics,” says Anders Mjåset, Chief Product Officer and Co-Founder of Mesh Community.
