Danish software company Cuttles has named Karen Røigaard as its new Startup Success Manager. Karen’s role is to produce relevant and engaging content to support Cuttles’ growth, as well as working with startup customers to provide them with guidance and support.
As well as working full-time at Cuttles, Karen is also studying Business Administration at Copenhagen Business School. Between her job, her study and her three dogs, she lives a busy life from her home in central Copenhagen. She describes her new role at Cuttles as her dream position, as it allows her to work in a variety of different ways.
“I’m one of those people who, I’m too interested in everything. In startups, there are so many different aspects; you’ve got so many different kinds of companies, and different kinds of products, different kinds of people. So in that way, it’s kind of perfect for me,” she said. “I’ve always been very interested in startups, and this job is a job in a startup working with startups. I thought not only to get a job within a startup, which is a great learning experience, too, but to actually be able to engage in a lot of different types of startups is amazing.”
Karen is also passionate about music, and plays the bass and sings in her spare time. She describes herself as a foodie, and loves to try new restaurants and eateries in the city. Karen was able to indulge this side of her in her last role as a retail manager for Reinh van Hauen Aps, a family-owned bakery that’s been running in Copenhagen for nearly 150 years.
While she has only been at Cuttles a short time, since the start of 2021, Karen is quickly finding her feet. She has found her areas of responsibility, and is enjoying having her “entire desk full of tasks.”
