Just a short news story – the danish Ministry of Finance released a press release today that they will be working for an open API for the basic information on citizens and companies, such as addresses and company registration numbers. This will hopefully enable more interesting services and startups to emerge, who can use the information in new and innovative ways.
One thing it might also do is making it alot easier for entrepreneurs to find economic information on other companies. This is something that already is easy in Sweden with the very popular site allabolag.se, but that now might be possible in Denmark aswell.
Update: there are som interesting thoughts about the changes and what possibilities it gives for entrepreneurs on TrendsOnline.dk.
