When talking about looming public offerings from the region, Swedish gaming giant King is the only company’s saga on people’s minds. But perhaps because we’ve been talking about preparing for an IPO since September of 2012 when they raised €46 million, we can’t forget that soon Copenhagen-founded Zendesk is still planning on getting listed.
According to the Wall Street Journal, the company has now hired Goldman Sachs to lead their IPO duties, suggesting that an IPO may be coming sooner than later.
Zendesk was founded in 2007 and provides cloud-based customer support services used by Fortune 500 companies and small businesses alike, who use it to manage and track customer interactions, report bugs, and help manage customer interaction on Facebook and Twitter. Today Zendesk counts more than 30,000 paying customers.
We’ll be staying on top of the story, but for more information on Zendesk, we’d encourage you to watch CEO Mikkel Svane’s practical advice to entrepreneurs from our conference, The Arctic15.
