About the startup program

We have a long and broad experience of helping entrepreneurs from idea to established company. Since the start, we have helped over 250 companies to develop and grow. The key is a proven process, professional business coaches and of course - good ideas from the contractors.

We love all kinds of ideas, but we are very interested in those who are involved in solving major societal challenges.

Our startup programs follow the same approach and are based on two phases - one with a focus on developing your idea and the other on developing your company. The programs are permeated by sustainable business and the global sustainability goals.

Why should I apply?

Business development

You're the expert of your own idea. We are here to help you with the business side of things such as sharpen your pitch to investors and publishers, and identify possible opportunities going forward. Long story short, together we develop your idea into a company.

Important contacts and a broad community

We offer an ecosystem with contacts and actors - in business, academia and the public sector. Crucial doors can be opened, for you, and your company's development. Through our startup programs, you also get access to our broad community that gives you both a context and the opportunity for valuable contacts and knowledge development.

Network with capital

Through our large network of contacts and a number of partners, your company can get help with financing solutions in different phases, regardless of whether it is a development or research project, or support for growth. For good ideas from driven entrepreneurs, there is always access to capital.
Our startup programs are run completely without profit.

I don't know any other place or setting like this. I wouldn't have started the company if it weren't for this startup program.
