Art Day speed dating
Artup Day is a startup day for creative industries, for everyone who has started or wants to start a business or organisation within creative industries. They got answers on arts and culture grants, “Bilfritt byliv”, how to start a company, “Oslo European Green Capital 2019” and about everything on big events, logistics and security.
This first time, we collaborated with seven organizations who speed dated startups within the creative industries in Oslo: The Agency for Cultural Affairs, The Urban Environment Agency, DNB, Carfree City Center (Bilfritt byliv), the Planning and Building Services, the European green Capital 2019 organization and Kløkt.
The entrepreneurs sharing on stage were Runar Eggesvik (Mono, Internasjonalen, Øya, Kulturhuset), Marte Strand (Happy projects), Erlend Mogård Larsen (by:Larm, Salt, Vippa, Træna) and the Vice Mayor Rina Mariann Hansen. Marianne Welle, head of The Big O, Oslo Business Region led the conversations on stage.
