On 20 March we gathered 400 front runners in tech and startup to kick-off Oslo Innovation Week 2018. To inspire future event organizers and attendees, to give valuable insight and tools to the community, and facilitate for networking amongst the event organizers.
Oslo Innovation Week positions Norway, and Oslo, as the capital region for sustainABLE entrepreneurship, technology and innovation. Last year 11000 entrepreneurs and innovation leaders attended over 50 events organised by 150 organizations, startups and accelerators.
We invited new and previous event organizers to kick-off Oslo Innovation Week 2018 at Røverstaden. Some call it exponential organising, we call it dugnad.
At the event the attendees could learn about the conceptual framework, surprising news and topics for Oslo Innovation Week 2018. We had talks on Oslo as a sustainable growth engine by the city of Oslo, on what it takes to go from start-ups to scale-ups by Torger Reve, and the lates tech trends by Silvija Seres. And 8 event organizers pitched their event for feedback and involvement.
