"I have worked with Preben Damgaard since the beginning of 2013, where he invested in Endomondo and became Chairman of the Board of Directors. At that time, Endomondo was facing a number of challenges that Preben helped us overcome. Preben has experience relevant for growing startups in addition to a valuable network and an analytical and patient approach to solving difficult problems. Preben played a key role in our sales of Endomondo to Under Armour for $85M in 2015. At Too Good To Go I again have the pleasure of working with Preben.
