Why you should join Oslo Innovation Week: It’s time to build on Sept 21st-25th (Sponsored)

We all need to build. Some build physically, others virtually. Innovation never stops, and this year Oslo Innovation Week is bringing it to you, wherever you are. That’s right – this year, they are going digital!

You’re invited to Oslo Innovation Week 2020

You could be a founder building a growth company, or an investor building a green tech portfolio. Maybe you are a city planner looking for solutions that will create a greener, more inclusive city, or a programmer building a cutting edge software. Oslo Innovation Week 2020 wants to meet you, and this year, for the first time, they invite you to join from the comfort of your own home.

It’s important to remember what we have built in the past, but Oslo Innovation Week thinks that we must look forward. Through 5 main topics (Future of Work, Energy, Health Innovation, Circular Economy, Accelerating Growth), they’ll be considering questions like: What solutions do we need to build a better world? Why is it important for women to invest? How to scale through partnerships? And many more.

There will be several events for startups. One of them is OIW 100 Pitches – the Netflix for pitches. The event will be selecting the best pitch from the 320 startups who have submitted their video pitch from over 50 (!) countries.

In addition to the 60+ events created by their amazing community, they have curated a programme in collaboration with 5 partners: ICT Norway, Energy Valley, Norway Health Tech, Antler and Cisco. Throughout Oslo Innovation Week, these partners will deep dive into topics in their OIW Studio like how digital waste can be reused, the digital potential for building and construction industries, and ethics and ownership of health data.

The Official Opening of Oslo Innovation Week will also include talks by the CEO of the food saving startup TooGoodToGo, Mette Lykke (DK) and the author of Loonshots: How to Nurture the Crazy Ideas that Win Wars, Cure Diseases and Transform Industries, Safi Bachall (US).
