We are thrilled to announce that Minerva Imaging has been honored with the prestigious EY Entrepreneur of the Year 2023 award for the Zealand region. This remarkable achievement was unveiled during an inspiring evening dedicated to celebrating innovation and excellence in Denmark. The EY Entrepreneur Of The Year is a globally recognized business competition that spans across more than 60 countries.

Sasja Dalgaard, associate partner at EY Denmark commented: “Since its foundation in 2011, the company has been in constant and significant growth in all areas. The fact that the workforce is growing by almost 70% in just one year is incredibly impressive. At the same time, it can be seen in the accounts that they are investing heavily, so their growth journey has only just begun. It is particularly gratifying when they operate within an industry where we in Denmark have already made our mark and would like to be even better.”

Carsten Nielsen, CEO and co-founder at Minerva Imaging: “Winning the regional EY Entrepreneur of the Year award 2023 strongly recognizes our remarkable journey from a university spin-off company, to a fully integrated CRO/CDMO in targeted radiopharmaceuticals and molecular imaging area with a global reach. We want to thank all our incredible employees for their amazing efforts and our valued collaborators for their trust and support.”

For over 25 years, Denmark has hosted the EY Entrepreneur Of The Year event, celebrating individuals and organizations that have made significant contributions to their respective industries and communities. Stay tuned for the announcement of the national final winner on November 23.
