Norway is experiencing some seriously big changes. We are rapidly branching out into a technology and knowledge based economy with a strong green profile – a big shift for a country with an economy dominated by oil and gas. Oslo is a key site for these changes – and our business and startup ecosystem is flourishing.

Gaining the most to win are the innovators, entrepreneurs and investors prepared to embrace change and adapt to the new realities that characterise the 21st century: the continuing importance of technological innovation, climate friendly solutions and entrepreneurship. In the past few years Oslo has also become home to a range of exciting and ambitious new businesses and startups, accelerators, entrepreneurial programmes and co-working spaces.
