Norway has the fastest growing tech scene amongst the Nordic countries, when once it was lagging behind. Government programs have facilitated the entrepreneurship bubble within the tech sector and the mindset of the Norwegian startup ecosystem has adapted to this fast pace. The country is known as one of the richest nations in the world with large oil deposits in the North Sea being the prime reason for this abundance of wealth. When oil prices plummeted, entrepreneurism came to the fore and Norway is now considered as one of the best places to launch a new business.
Dynamic and visionary, the focus is on diversification with smart and creative individuals creating companies solving real-world problems. Numerous incubators, accelerators and coworking venues have emerged giving the fast paced ecosystem a sense of cohesion and community.
