Oslo is dedicated to creating more startups and scaleups that solve local and global challenges. To strengthen that goal, Oslo Business Region is now a member of the new member organization, NorNAB.

NorNAB is an independent and membership-driven organization that works for the growth and development of the impact investment ecosystem in Norway. It it part of a bigger international origin, Global Steering Group for Impact Investing. Today, the global group consists of 30 national and regional advisory boards representing 35 countries. In addition, an additional 30 national advisory boards are under development or on their way to becoming members, including NorNAB.

Why we are a member of NorNAB

The members include those seeking capital, those providing it, and those helping to make these deals happen to achieve the United Nations Sustainable Development Goals. Impact companies and investments are important to create even more green jobs in Oslo and to support the growing ecosystem for startups and scaleups in Norway. We are happy to provide support to that work.
