About Benjamin and his Huss Group:
Behind Huss Group are the Huss Brothers, Benjamin and Stefan. In 2004, while holidaying in Australia, the brothers experienced the live-gaming thrill of laser game, and decided on the spot that they had to bring the idea back to their homeland of Germany.
Soon after they founded Lasergame Group, which today boasts across Europe and has secured a position as a market leader in toy weapons and live-gaming.
While establishing Lasergame in Scandinavia, Benjamin developed an interest in Denmark’s thriving entrepreneurial scene, and since 2014 he has acquired a number of promising Danish companies.
Beside the desire to create and support growth within the start-up sector, Stefan and Benjamin recognised the value in gathering a portfolio of innovative companies across diverse sectors under one umbrella. Through this approach, Huss Group now has a suite of skills and competencies that can easily collaborate across industries and on an international platform.
In time, Huss Group has established a wide-reaching network and solid experience in economic development, sales, management, and marketing. Which makes it possible to support startups I different countries.
Beside of entrepreneurship, Stefan and Benjamin have a big passion for sport. They have several sponsorships, which gives them a good knowledge about what it takes, to do a successful deal in sport.
