The startup ecosystem of Oslo grows at an exponential rate, and Oslo is on track to become an increasingly powerful change engine for the Norwegian economy. Innovation and entrepreneurship is the answer, regardless of sector that may dominate our future economy. Oslo needs to step up the startup game, and become an internationally recognized startup hub.
Oslo Business Region AS was established by the city of Oslo in 2014. Our ambition and mandate is to raise the number of startups with international success, to build an even more durable startup ecosystem and culture, and to make Oslo an internationally recognized startup hub.
We’re looking for a streetsmart event producer / project coordinator to join our small, dedicated team.
You have true passion about making a difference in the world and believe that tech and startups are a part of that solution. Maybe you’ve even started a business yourself, or it’s likely you will in the future. You’ll work alongside great colleagues that work extremely hard, love food and love Oslo.
We organize events like Oslo Innovation Week and Startup Day. You’ll be involved with most of them, overlooking tasks like event production, booking of speakers and communicating them.
You have smart and bold ideas for constantly improving our events – both on production and content. You have a good technical understanding and network of suppliers for building events. What kind of WiFi does 500 iPhones and 80 laptops require? Should we live stream an event? How long is a lunch break for 50 vs 1200 attendees? What are the latest tech trends?
You’ll meet and work with the best entrepreneurs and tech experts in Oslo, international speakers and production suppliers.
You have the ability to work independently once a brief has been given. We have a flexible work environment and in a few months we’ll move into new fresh offices.
