CEO Mikkel Skarnager said, “With the spektr-platform, we can make ongoing due diligence an efficient function with commercial value for companies rather than being a costly expense. When looking at the explosion in the number of employees and expenses, I am convinced that there is great potential in making compliance a better business, We’re off to an incredible start, thanks to both the platform and the generous support from our investors. This journey brings back memories of our success with HelloFlow, but this time, we’re aiming for something even bigger and long-lasting,”.

The core of spektr is an accomplished group of people who have built successful businesses, identified potential gaps in the due diligence market, and developed cutting-edge platforms. As a result, Northzone, PreSeed Ventures, and Seedcamp, three venture firms, have made sizeable investments to support spektr’s early growth.

Principal at Northzone, Maxine Rior, commented: “We are incredibly excited to partner with spektr. They are an exceptional team with a very clear product vision, and we believe they will be able to leverage their experience from HelloFlow to build spektr into a category-defining company within the compliance space.”

General Partner in PSV Tech01, Alexander Viterbo-Horten, added: “As one of the earliest investors in Mikkel and Ciprian’s first startup HelloFlow, I’ve been fortunate enough to get to know them very well. Their execution power and strategic understanding of the financial compliance market are profoundly impressive This makes spektr one of the best bets on a future unicorn out of Denmark. It’s a true testament to that, that we’re several investors from the first journey who decided to invest again.”

Partner at Seedcamp, Tom Wilson, said: “We’re delighted to have the opportunity to back Mikkel and Ciprian as they go again with spektr. The HelloFlow journey gave us a taste of the market-leading products they can build and we’re excited to see where they can take spektr, building on that experience.”
