Oslo at SXSW 2019: Oslo talks: Impact Investment and User data

March 8 - March 12

Oslo talks: Impact Investment and User data

SXSW 2019

House of Scandinavia, 111 Congress Ave, Austin, TX 78701 (2nd/Congress Ave)

March 10, 2019, 10.00AM – 11.30AM (Doors and food 9.30)


We invite founders, investors and tech people to join our two panel discussions on March 10th, 2019, 10am-11.45am.


What are Oslo’s competitive advantages in the modern tech economy?

Nordic Impact and Katapult Accelerator are examples of the increased attention towards impact startups in the region, and many corporates have been working for years with environmental / social / governance. Business solutions to the sustainable development goals are the obvious choice.

Will impact investment be the new normal in the Nordics?


In the second panel talk we will discuss user data and how tech is both an enabler for and threat towards privacy. Will GDPR slow us down in the global fight for machine learning tools?


The event is organized by Oslo Business Region, Nordic Impact, Oslo Freedom Forum and IKT Norge. We hope you can join us!
