87 events. 157 event organisers. Countless hours of digital content viewed by 25 000+ people tuning in from all over the world. Here's a recap of all the buzz and statistics from the first ever digital Oslo Innovation Week!

Oslo Innovation Week brings forward new voices and innovation in action. We highlight bold solutions that solve real global challenges through entrepreneurship, technology and innovation. We believe in creating sustainable solutions by bridging differences and forming new powercouples, pushing the world forward through collaboration.

Since 2005, Oslo Innovation Week has brought together entrepreneurs, leaders, investors, innovation drivers, technology experts and creatives in the city of Oslo. This year, because of Covid-19, Oslo Innovation Week was for the first time a digital event. More than 25 000 people joined us, 45% of which were international.

Oslo Innovation Week is a collaboration between public and private, startup organisations and corporates, Norwegian and international companies. The 2020 chapter was created by 157 partners and event organisers.

The theme of Oslo Innovation Week 2020 was ‘It’s time to build’. Highlighting founders building a growth company, investors building a green tech portfolio, city planners looking for solutions that will create a greener, more inclusive city or a programmer building a cutting edge software. During a pandemic we pushed forward those building for the future.

Oslo Innovation Week 2020 included 87 events from full day conferences and seminars to workshops and meetups.

The event is supported by the City of Oslo, Innovation Norway and Oslo Regionen.
