BUILD2GROW is an entrepreneurial program



BUILD2GROW is an entrepreneurial program for startups and companies in a development phase. We are located in Oslo Science Park and host different events and seminars for the benefit of norwegian entrepreneurs. Our experience is that entrepreneurs may often be experts at their specific field, but lack general skills in other entrepreneurial tasks, such as finance, marketorientation, and sales. By participating at our events, you’ll get an introduction to important knowledge, tools and skills that will bring your idea, product or service forward. In addition, you’ll get valuable networking opportunities towards investors and established industries, as well as the value of meeting fellow entrepreneurs.

The BUILD2GROW program focuses on four key-areas: Sale and markets, organization and leadership, economy and finance, and technology and product. Every course builds one of the key-areas, and angles it towards relevant entrepreneurial issues. At our events you’ll meet highly qualified professional recourses and speakers from established industry. Our events vary from smaller breakfast-meetings, to full day-seminars. We focus mainly on educational events for entrepreneurs, but do also offer business coach-meetings where entrepreneurial coaches, incubators, and other helpers surrounding start-ups can meet and boost their skills and knowledge towards entrepreneurs.


Some BUILD2GROW-talks are recorded and made available on our website shortly after the event. In addition to the film, the user will get access to any presentation and relevant tools attached to the lecture. Allthough a majority of our videos are in norwegian language, you'll find a listing of our english-speaking videos HERE.


Our BUILD2GROW-program is financed through several partnerships, from partnering counties of Oslo, Akershus and Buskerud.
