The startup studio Djänke recently published this year’s first growth letter. The letter includes news about HittaHem, United Robots and Hoodin, who each has made significant progress in recent times.
Back in December, the long-running technical house Menmo changed their name to Djäkne. Djäkne is a startup studio focused on helping startups with early stage business- and product development. The house is placed at Djäknegatan 9 at the heart of Malmö.
At their official website Djäkne underlines that they are not a VC, an incubator or an accelerator program.
“We are a startup studio where we invest our own capital in startups and use our experience and network to grow them into successful companies. We measure our success in growing revenues in the companies and in how much fun we have together,” says Lars Widmark, CEO of Djäkne
