Oslo's Startup Ecosystem

In the past few years, the startup community in Oslo has skyrocketed. An army of Oslo-born companies have entered local and international markets much thanks to the ecosystem surrounding them. Collaboration is our way of competing, and various startup and innovation hubs are available for new and established entrepreneurs all over Oslo.

Hello Tøyen Startup Village
Tøyen Startup Village joined the Oslo startup hub ”family” in 2016 – a unique public-private partnership in the middle of Tøyen, with co-working, event space and a Work Bar on the ground level of Tøyen Torg. As of March 2020 the office space is no longer run as a co-working community by Tøyen Startup Village. The Work Bar on the square is still a very popular place to work or just hang out for entrepreneurs, students and locals alike. And there are news to share! We had a chat with Philip Skopakov, who could give us an update.
