Founded in 2019

TIME:ANGELS was founded in January of 2019 after our two founders, Henriette Gavlshøj Mortensen and Xenia Duffy, met for their first cup of coffee.

They were both inspired by the notion that time is as valuable resource as any for investing in the change you want to see in the world.

Together, they raised the first funding, recruited the first Time Angels, startups and volunteers. The two, who had never met before, worked side-by-side (sometimes virtually or on the phone) as they built the community in Aarhus, Copenhagen and Odense. Henriette usually behind her laptop with her youngest daughter on her arm, and Xenia traveling around the country by bus and by train meeting like-minded people willing to join, help or support. 

Today, we have grown to become a team of 20+ volunteers, who have recruited more than 500+ Time Angels and helped 60+ sustainable entrepreneurs.

“Time is the coin of your life.
It is the only coin you have,
and only you can determine
how it will be spent.”

Carl Sandburg

Meet our founders

  • Xenia, a startup advisor at the time, saw how entrepreneurs struggled to build their business, and at the same time climbing a steep learning curve of all the things it takes to build a business. 

  • Henriette, Ph.D. in Nanoscience, knew from her work in academia that synergizing our efforts is something everyone can benefit from, but is rarely prioritized in our day-to-day work.
