Two-letter combinations form the common thread in my career: EU and IT.
I have been employed by the European Union for over 20 years and has spent most of my career has been associated with the IT areas and the use of IT.
Today I manage my own business Whyse ApS with 5 employees. I specialize in advising businesses on EU applications, innovation and IT.
I graduated e-engineer and worked, like most other engineers with engineering the first several years. (1973-1985)
After several years of having been development manager, I took a walk past the Technology Agency, which in late 1980 launched the Danish IT program TUP. Here I was associated with the planning group to coordinate consumption of 1.5 billion. DKK in Denmark (1985-1986).
The money was never used, but I had learned that in the EU were some programs that shared money into businesses where these came with exciting new ideas.
So I took to the EU capital Brussels. Actually it was only on a contract for a half year, but since I was there, why not look for a permanent position? (1986)
It took good enough for a half years to get through trials and tests, but the result was an appointment. Here they discovered quickly that I was used to guide development, and I took over all development of IT program Esprit (1986 to 1991).
After 5 years, the danger of being EU functionary imminent, so I quit and went home. Now I had worked for so many years that I felt it was time to start my own business (1991 -).
As I said then done. Back in Denmark was my first customer Business Affairs, which sent me back Brussels. Now just as Danish member of the Management Committee, ESPRIT Management Committee, which formeldt was responsible for management of the ESPRIT program. ESPRIT donates 1 million. euro to Cern project with someone now called Sir Timothy "Tim" John Berners-Lee, who fully developed the world wide web Protocol "html" (1996).
It gave my feeling that now began an industrial revolution, and I started IT company ColorWeb, along with Mads Tarstup (1996).
ColorWeb and European advisory went in parallel for many years until in 2006 when everything was assembled under the name Whyse. The name is pronounced as "wise" (knowledge) and contains the inquiring Why (why). This emphasizes the core values of knowledge and curiosity.
