At the annual meeting at Active Owners Denmark VIA equity’s John Helmsøe-Zinck received the “Honorary Award of the Year”.
The chairman of Active Owners Denmark (the Danish association of Private Equity and Venture Capital), Christian Frigast, explained the background for giving the price to John:
“John Helmsøe-Zinck is an exceptional person whose contribution has left a decisive mark on our industry, and he has distinguished himself by his dedication and drive. The foundation stone for John’s most groundbreaking creation was laid in 2006 when he founded VIA equity in close collaboration with Lars Rohde, then CEO of ATP. In the beginning, VIA was in modest surroundings, but even from the basement office under ATP, the ambitions and success grew rapidly. Fund I, financed with capital from ATP, focused on software and IT companies, a vision that is still central to VIA today. Congratulations, John, on deservedly receiving the honorary award!”.
