Why it exists?

Urbanisation is increasing and the population in Oslo is growing. This puts pressure on the city to come up with new and smart solutions. But we can’t do this alone! In 2017, new guidelines and regulations changed in Norway in regards to public procurement. The new law will now in fact help you as an entrepreneur increase your chances of winning a public tender. We hope that this will motivate you to come up with new and innovative ideas, helping  our city by making it way smarter, livable and lovable for  all of us.

The weekend will include hands on advice and mentoring provided by the Municipality, representatives and renowned coaches and mentors from the Norwegian  and international techscene.
