My Story as an danish Entrepreneur!

2015

  • I started 2015 setting some goals for my business. Goals is always a good way to get started and it helps on your motivation. I wanted to have a turnover on 1 million danish kroner. I also wanted to launch my project GetTheEvent.com and buy a car for the company.
  • In February my company flew one of the world’s best flair bartenders to Denmark. His name was Lupu Flavius. If you don’t believe me try to google him. Amazing guy! We made a show with him for a danish company in Kolding. The 400 guests was impressed.
  • In April I bought my first car. It was a Citroen Berlingo from 2000. I named it the Barlingo. It was not the best car but it was cheap (15.000 DKK incl. danish VAT) and it was better than renting cars on weekly basis.
  • Opened my own Cocktail Bar called “The Bar Træls“. We shut it down after just one weekend. Why? Well the owners of the venue didn’t like our massive exposure from the danish media. However it was a fun and great experience.
  • I got the World Record in Gin Tonic. We created the world biggest and best gin tonic at Distortion Street Festival in Copenhagen. The volume was 2000 litre and it was made with Whitney Neill Gin and Fever Tree Tonic. That’s why it’s not only the worlds biggest Gin Tonic but also the worlds best Gin Tonic. Cheers for that!
  • My company got company references such as: Telenor, TDC, PWC, Lloyds Bank and so on.
  • We was on Copenhagen Fashion Week in Bella Center. The danish fashion company Depeche.eu hired us to serve at the fair. It was a succes and they hired us for the 2016 fair immediately.
  • We did another show in Bella Center. This time for Lloyds Bank. They wanted a top notch Flair Bartending Show. GetBartender.com hired Kim Hass and Michael Dahlstrøm to deliver that. They nailed it.
