Restaurant Aquavit opened to immediate success in midtown Manhattan in November 1987. Three decades later, Aquavit continues to be one of New York’s most popular and highly esteemed dining destinations. Aquavit is honored with two stars in The Michelin Guide New York City since 2015 and three stars by the New York Times. 

A pioneer on the American dining scene, Aquavit remains the only world-class modern Nordic restaurant in the country. Aquavit was also the first restaurant in New York to house two concepts under one roof: a casual bistro serving hearty, simple fare and a formal dining room offering refined, modern Nordic cuisine. This structure was inspired by Operakällaren, the famous Stockholm restaurant, whose legendary owner, Tore Wretman, was one of Aquavit’s original partners.

Anne Wolfson: Lawyer and Business Counselor, PLLC

Entering the US market is easy. Doing it correctly will save you time and money in the long run but takes some planning.

The first step is to understand the differences in the legal systems. Anne will explain how to get started in the US, and how to think about it without making yourself crazy.

Steve Maggi: U.S. Immigration Lawyer SMA Law Firm, New York smalawyers.com

Expanding your business to the U.S. is one thing, being able to work and live there is not the automatic result. Steve will explain how you can realize your dream of living, working or running a business legally in the U.S. by acquiring a visa or green card. What are the options for a Nordic national?

Lena Beck Rørvig: Global Performance Coach Beck Global Consulting beckglobalconsulting.com

"Culture eats strategy for breakfast." Success rests highly on the expat’s shoulder. It is vital for success that the company focus on enabling and securing performance and growth for key employees working in unknown territory. How is that done so valuable time is not lost.

What is the U.S. Tax Reform all about?

On December 22, 2017 President Trump signed the tax reform bill (H.R. 1, the "Tax Cuts and Jobs Act") into law. The law will lower business and individual tax rates, modernize U.S. international tax rules, and provide the most significant overhaul of the U.S. tax code in more than three decades.

Trumponomics - A 2018 U.S. Economic Outlook by Torsten Sløk, Chief International Economist at Deutsche Bank

DACCNY is inviting its members to an evening with Torsten Sløk, Chief International Economist and Managing Director at Deutsche Bank, an event co-hosted with Djøf.

4805c19a-0801-42fc-bf96-a0045c3caf8a-1.jpeg

Join us when Djøf New York and the Danish-American Chamber of Commerce invite you for another exciting evening with Torsten Sløk. Torsten Sløk, Chief International Economist and Managing Director at Deutsche Bank Securities, has generously agreed to share his thoughts on what we might expect from the U.S. and world economies in 2018, as the curtain is raised for the second year of the current administration. So far, the markets have been in positive territory despite the confusion and uncertainty emanating from and caused by President Trump's daily Twitter feed. But what will the future bring? And what will it take to continue the positive market trend?

During the election campaign, Donald Trump promised major changes that would Make America Great Again. Promises whose manifestation remains elusive.

The new tax reform whose adoption seemed almost assured at the end of 2017 would be a major legislative achievement for Trump's embattled White House.

Republicans promise growth and tax cuts; Democrats predict the opposite. But what consequences do economists outside the Beltway predict this new reform might have? And how about the promises of more jobs, improved infrastructure, greater military investment, reduced regulation, and new trade agreements? All factors that will have an impact on the United States and the world's economic future.

After the talk, there will be an opportunity to ask Torsten questions.

The evening will continue with networking at a nearby bar - location to be determined.

There is a limited number of seats – it’s first-come first-served.

When: Thursday, January 18, 2017 – 6:00-8:30 PM.

Where: Deutsche Bank 60 Wall St. New York, NY 10005

An evening with Thorkil Sonne - Driving passion to international success

How do you drive passion to success?


DACC and DJØF New York are excited to invite you for an evening with Thorkil Sonne, the founder of Specialisterne Foundation (The Specialists Foundation).

Screen Shot 2017-10-09 at 9.38.33 PM.png



Thorkil Sonne founded Specialisterne (The Specialists) in 2004 after his son was diagnosed with infantile autism.
Autists have an estimated unemployment rate of up to 80% and Thorkil saw a huge need and an opportunity to make a difference.

The mission of the Specialists is to create job opportunities for autistic people and people with similar challenges. The organization's goal is to generate 100,000 jobs for this demographic in the United States and 1 million worldwide, by 2025. The organization is ambitious, highly professional and innovative, and they have already chalked up a great number of success stories.
Thorkil Sonne, who has participated in the Danish Broadcasting Corporation's documentary series "Hidden Talents," has helped some of the world's largest IT players realize the benefits of hiring people with autism. Watch the broadcast here in Danish.

Thorkil will talk about the Specialists as an organization, its mission and work for change, his experiences starting up and leading an NGO in the United States and driving passion to international success.
The talk will be in English.

The example of Specialisterne, its mission, and accomplishments, inspires us at the broadest human level. It’s a story about a father’s love and sacrifices for his son, about members of society left behind and counted-out who return in triumph.”
- Professor Robert D. Austin, Copenhagen Business School, Denmark

Arctober Goes Nordic - Integrating Design and Health in Urban Redevelopment Projects

Archtober.jpeg

Urban redevelopment projects offer the opportunity of completely integrating the built environment with a design that favors human health, productivity, and renewable energy. Though these developments often come at a higher initial monetary cost, a majority of building owners in both the US and the Nordic region are willing to pay more for buildings that improve public health and productivity.

The Nordic region offers strong best practices with the natural link between design, health, and livability. With the flagship project, Nordic Sustainable Cities, this is further promoted as part of the Nordic Prime Ministers’ new initiative “Nordic Solutions to Global Challenges”.

This panel session will explore how NYC urban redevelopment projects such as the Manhattanville Campus approach to creating a greenfield district compares to Nordic best practices within design and public health in the built environment.

The conference is hosted in collaboration with the Norwegian Consulate General, Consulate General of Denmark, Consulate General of Finland, Consulate General of Sweden, Consulate General of Iceland and Danish Cleantech Hub.
