Last week it was time for the annual Oslo Innovation Week, a week full of events promoting innovation and entrepreneurship. For me it started out with a motivational lecture on Networking and Internationalization organized by the Norwegian Polytechnic Society and students at the School of Prosjektdesign, featuring the serial entrepreneur Ryan Blair. He really has an amazing story to tell!
Next was a combined event of Movation Future Forum, the Venture Cup Norway Finals and First Tuesday, a rocking show in the Oslo City Hall with millions in prize money being handed out to worthy entrepreneurs. This was followed by Start Forum, the annual meeting-place and general assembly for members of the student organization Start Norway. Which after several days with activities, networking and fun was concluded last Saturday with a black-tie dinner at Drengsrud gård in Asker. Definitely one for the history-books!
