Press release -

Is Norway’s first Unicorn impatiently waiting to enter the scene during Oslo innovation Week?

They say the Nordic Startup scene is getting hot, and right now the heat is on in Norway during Oslo Innovation Week 12-16 Oct. I guess you’ve already heard about Tidal, Kahoot, Xeneta and Unacast. But who’s next? Is Norway’s first Unicorn impatiently waiting to enter the scene? Or will a startup from Austin or Hackney take the prize as the most promising?

Oslo Innovation Week now presents 100 pitches. The 100 most talented and promising startups join the battle in entry rounds in hubs all over town, followed by semifinals and the grand finale on Oct 15.

A high profiled international jury will pick the final winner: Sean Percival (500 Startups), Jeanne M. Sullvian (Sullivan Adventures), Murat Aktihanoglu (Entrepreneurs Roundtable Accelerator), Tellef Thorleifsson (NorthZone) and Bård Stranheim (Innovation Norway). 

One winner takes it all: money and international services. To go global!

Free tickets available if you want an instant knowledge about the stirring Norwegian startup scene.
