Welcome new digital power

By Advice

We have made a big move to boost our tech ambitions. As of September 14, our tech division joins forces with Norway’s most successful and fast-growing consultancy within digital strategy, design, and development, Forte Digital.

With its more than 275 digital architects, developers and UX designers across Oslo, Krakow, Berlin and Copenhagen our new shared company Forte Advice is from day one a digital powerhouse and fully integrated supplier of technology, design and strategic consulting. Forte Advice is a new company with 50/50 ownership between Advice and Forte Digital, and with shared ambitions to offer even stronger and deeper competences and solutions to clients across some of Denmark's largest brands, organisations and government agencies.

A great match

Forte Digital is a Norwegian growth comet with an impressive story growing from zero to more than 250 employees in Oslo, Krakow, and Berlin in just five years. Forte Digital was founded in 2017 by a group of skilled IT professionals with an ambition to do things differently – creating less complicated solutions, with the business and the user experience at the centre.

"We see huge potential in moving into the Danish market, where our experience from Norwegian clients can be used in growing and scaling the business and potential of Danish companies. Therefore, we have been looking for a partner with an established, healthy digital business in order to be able to jointly pursue that potential. Advice is one of the most reputable and strongly positioned agencies on the Danish market with a large overlap in the customer types we are used to working with," shares John Kårikstad, CEO and co-founder of Forte Digital.

We turbocharge our offering on technology

"At Advice, we already have a strong position and a digital business with great potential. By joining forces with Forte Digital, who have a unique approach and some of Europe’s most skilled specialists and developers, we expand our existing business within strategy, UX, and development even further," says our CEO Mille Klink, adding:

"More and more communication takes place in our customers' own digital ecosystems. Therefore, it is essential to gain a deep understanding of data and technology. Through Forte Advice, we can raise the bar and create even more solid, long-lasting, and sustainable digital solutions that contribute positively to our customers' business and deliver on Advice’s overall ambition”.

Jesper Nørding Pedersen, Director of Advice's tech division, is to be the Managing Director of Forte Advice, and CEO at Forte Digital, John Kårikstad, will act as Chairman of the Board.
