Oslo Innovation Week 2024x Innovation Norway

Published by Oslo Business Region, 25 June 2024

Oslo Innovation Week and Innovation Norway have announced a strategic partnership which aims to foster global innovation and sustainable growth. This collaboration is rooted in a shared vision for advancing entrepreneurship and value creation here in Norway.

Celebrating its 20th year, Oslo Innovation Week has stood as a beacon for innovation in the Norwegian business scene, bringing together diverse stakeholders to explore cutting-edge ideas and drive meaningful change. In 2024, Oslo Innovation Week will be organised as a collaborative effort between The City of Oslo, Innovation Norway, and key players in the Oslo region.

Tom Miskin, the Oslo Innovation Week project lead looks forward to what the collaboration can bring - "We are delighted to collaborate with Innovation Norway. Their expertise, network, and funding really helps Oslo Innovation Week to develop its program and communication efforts, attracting top international attendees to engage with the Norwegian ecosystem."

Innovation Norway has been instrumental in supporting Norwegian companies in their quest for sustainable growth and international expansion. By providing access to expertise, capital, and networks, Innovation Norway has empowered countless ventures to grow and scale beyond Norwegian borders.

Central to this partnership is the exchange of knowledge and resources to support the scaling ambitions of Norwegian growth companies. With a focus on building international networks and enhancing scaling capabilities, Oslo Innovation Week and Innovation Norway seek to address a critical gap in Norway's entrepreneurial landscape.

To address this scaling gap, we are excited to announce that Ravi Belani, Founder and Managing Director of Alchemist Accelerator and Adjunct Lecturer at Stanford University, will join the Official Opening of Oslo Innovation Week 2024 to share his expertise in a Scaling Talk with Innovation Norway CEO Håkon Haugli. Additionally, Innovation Norway will host an exclusive scaling workshop moderated by international scaling expert Ola Forsström-Olsson, aimed at transforming promising startups into efficient, value-driving machines. Ola has helped hundreds of companies achieve sustainable and financially stable growth since the early 2000s.
