Andreas Rasmussen joins Lab08 as partner
10 years ago, we were direct competitors, and it was certainly not in the cards at the time that we would one day become business partners. In recent years, we have mutually benefitted from one another as sparring partners, and so the step we have now taken has seemed an entirely natural one. We are delighted to welcome Andreas Rasmussen as partner at Lab08!
Andreas is the co-founder and former CEO of Nodes (now MonstarLab). He is also one of the founders of Ironman in Denmark, and today he is active in eight different companies as an investor and board member.
We believe that Andreas is the right investor and partner for the journey we have embarked on at Lab08. First and foremost, he has been on an impressive journey with Nodes, which he helped develop into a market-leading software and consulting house with 140 employees in offices in Copenhagen, Aarhus, Amsterdam, London, Berlin, Dubai and Prague. Nodes was sold to Japanese MonstarLab in 2017, and Andreas stepped down as director of the company earlier this year.
In addition to Andreas’ obvious entrepreneurial experience, over the years he has helped design world-class software for Nodes’ customers and created a corporate culture that greatly resonates with our values at Lab08.
For us, there is no doubt that with Andreas’ experience and investment, we have created even more favourable conditions for fulfilling our ambitions for Lab08, while also strengthening our role as a partner that can help accelerate our customers’ development.
We know that from Andreas’ perspective, a key element in our conversation regarding the synergies between us has been that Lab08 has the potential to play an important role in the development of the companies in which he is already involved, as well as the companies he will be involved with in the future.
We are excited that our relationship has now evolved from sparring partners to business partners, and we look forward to realising the potential of our collaboration in the years to come!
