How can we help you as a startup and scaleup? Or incubator and business cluster?
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. If you have a project, event or great idea, we'd like to hear from you. We coordinate our Talent Attraction work with the Oslo Region Alliance, which is a public organization owned by 70 municipalities in the region.
What we offer startups and scaleups are access to our events and delegations, visibility in our database on Dealroom, and we're always looking for good stories to pitch to international journalists. Some times we host events for international talent, where we aim to facilitate for new connections and a warm welcome to Oslo. We are available to help you navigate in the ecosystem, and get in touch if you have questions.
