Published by Oslo Business Region, 03 September 2020

Startups and scaleups in Oslo are dependent on skilled workers to scale their companies. Many need to recruit internationally to get a hold of the right expertise. When recruiting, however, they often find that Oslo is not well known outside of the Nordics. To build a stronger position and compete globally, Oslo employers need to work together. Oslo Business Region collaborates with industry clusters, networks and startups/scaleups to attract and retain skilled international talent, mainly within tech and IT.

What we do:

  • International branding
  • Meeting places and events for startups and internationals
  • Inclusion and diversity
  • Collaboration & networks

International students in tech & IT
For delegations of tech and IT students, we can help connect you with relevant stakeholders, such as industry hubs and incubators that can help arrange meetings with growth companies. We do not cover travel costs for delegations.

How can we help you as a startup, scaleup, incubator or industry hub?

We collaborate with industry clusters, incubators, public organizations, and growth companies to attract and retain talent, mainly within tech and IT. We co-host events, delegations and PR initiatives. Please contact us if you would like to propose a project.

Startups and scaleups are featured in our database on Dealroom. We host events for employers and international talent throughout the year, build networks and facilitate connections. Feel free to contact us if you need guidance in navigating Oslo's innovation ecosystem or have a story you would like to share with international media.
