Oslo Meets Hackney 2018

6. December 2018

Oslo Business Region joins forces with 360Leaders to facilitate a one-day interactive event on scaling into new cities. You’re expanding your company internationally and setting up an office in a second location. Where to go and what factors to consider?

We invite investors and entrepreneurs from Oslo and London to join us for this intimate and valuable session. We will work on a specific challenge – scaling your company abroad – and we will work with cases from Attensi and Urban Sharing.

Why and how to join?
We aim to provide the entrepreneurs attending with tools to develop their business further, and to connect high profiled international people with some of the best founders and professionals in the tech business. 

We encourage Oslo-based companies working on scaling into a new city, and Oslo and London professionals and investors with knowledge on this case to request an invitation. The event will provide valuable insight as well as networking.

The event will take place in Hackney, London on Thursday, 6 December from 9.00am – 1pm. The event itself is free but invitation-only. Sounds like something you want to be part of? Let us know and we’ll get back to you within 48 hours!

An official agreement between the City of Oslo and The Borough of Hackney, was formally signed in May, 2015. The Memorandum of Understanding seeks to promote and enhance startup, business and commercial ties, as well as city to city official links, between Oslo and London, based on common interests and the sharing of knowledge within the tech and creative industries sector. However, the two cities has, over a period of five years,  cooperated on events such as “Oslo Meets Hackney” with great success.

Oslo Meets Hackney is an annual event since 2013 and is organized in connection with the lightning of the Oslo Christmas tree downtown London early December. The event seeks to promote and enhance the commercial ties between Oslo and London, based on common interests and the sharing of knowledge within the tech and creative industries sector. The event is organized by Oslo Business Region and industry partners and organizations from London and Oslo.
