Niels Zibrandtsen, Board member
Niels Zibrandtsen was one of the significant players in the 1990’s, when the Danish tele monopoly was broken and paved the way for new business based on innovative telecommunication solutions and the ability to execute.
Niels Zibrandtsen early saw the opportunities and established the telecommunications company GlobalConnect, which offered the business market a new, fast fiber-based data infrastructure and the first wireless connection across Øresund.
The foundation for success was laid, and the big thoughts that were behind the company’s name turned out to hold true. The sale of GlobalConnect – 20 years later – enabled Niels Zibrandtsen to have the freedom to invest more in the DNA he has always believed in; people who think fundamentally different and therefore can see opportunities and solutions no-one else can see. Today Niels Zibrandtsen and his family have built up a family-owned investment company, Zibra A/S. Zibra was created to invest smart money in innovative business ideas and people who executes, change, and improve the world
