June 28 2022 marked Aquaporin’s one-year anniversary as a listed company on the NASDAQ Copenhagen stock exchange. But what does it actually mean to be a listed company? Get the answer from three different perspectives, namely Aquaporin CEO Matt Boczkowski, CFO Klaus Juhl Wulff, and Chairperson of the Board Niels Heering. Together, they give a fascinating and personal insight into Aquaporin’s listing; the many years of hard work ahead of ringing the bell on the big day, and the wins and challenges during the first year.

Heering looks back on the past six years where he’s been part of Aquaporin and explains why it takes years to prepare a company for a listing, how he has contributed to the process and continues to support Aquaporin as Chairperson of the Board, and how being listed makes a difference for all people involved. 

Boczkowski wasn’t aware of Aquaporin’s plans when he joined the company a few months before the listing. Regardless of this, he had – and still has – a strong belief that Aquaporin’s potential is almost infinite. As he explains why, he also dives into Aquaporin’s commercial journey towards becoming a market leader in its field.

Having only been with Aquaporin for a month, Wulff gives an insight into his new role and his thoughts about being CFO of a listed company.
