Startup Norways purpose is to inspire and guide business minded individuals on taking the step to become a successful entrepreneur.
The initiative was started because we saw a lack of community and support for entrepreneurs in Norway. Inspired by living abroad in startup hubs, like Berlin, San Francisco and Boston, we have created initiatives we felt were missing locally.
Through educational and action packed events such as Startup Weekends, Startup Challenges among others: Startup Norway are able to teach and inspire the new generation of innovators. Catering to all experience levels from those just looking into the business world to the fully fledged entrepreneur now looking to launch their business internationally.
Startup Norway has a successful summer accelerator program which serves as an intense way to push companies to the next stage in their development. As well as this we host the Norwegian chapter of the Nordic Startup Awards – this is an event which serves to recognize and celebrate the Startup ecosystem based in the Nordics.
By facilitating new projects that feeds the ecosystem with more entrepreneurs and startups, we are aiming to build a thriving startup scene in Norway and tie the startup community closer together.
We like to meet people so get in contact and we can have a real or virtual coffee / tea / beer.
Startup Norway is a concept born from the desire to create a startup scene in Norway. We inspire, teach and promote an entrepreneurial mindset to individuals, startups and established companies. Through online and offline activities we work on tying the startup community more together and facilitate new projects, while putting a pressure on international awareness.
We believe large companies have a lot to learn from startups. Methods, mindset, speed, long-term visions, collaboration and leadership to mention a few. By helping companies to connect to the startup scene and adapt the culture innovation capacity will evolve over time.
