Event description

Description

Oslo Business Region with partners invite you to join an informal interactive kick-off for our new blue & green initiative. We mobilise the Oslo region ocean/tech communities to join forces, building & nurturing the worlds´ leading capital and ecosystem for sustainability-oriented ocean entrepreneurs. Oslo has the untapped potential to take lead, and function as a gateway to the other leading ocean clusters along the Norwegian coast. We will look at Oslo´s existing ecosystem and resources for ocean/tech entrepreneurs, identified gaps - and how we can collaborate and mobilise the industry to bridge the gaps.

Welcome to an engaging and exciting "dugnad" onboard SS Christian Radich!
