Event Details

Bringing startups, municipality, corporations, researchers, enthusiasts and citizens together to solve urban challenges.

Having entrepreneurial skills are now one of the most valued skills on the planet. And the opportunity has never been bigger for entrepreneurs. The smart city movement is catching momentum also in Norway: The challenges are clear to big and small; from the UN to the EU, from Innovation Norway to start-up hubs, from politicians, administrators to businesses. Technologically we are ready, almost any city service can be improved with a combination of currently available technology. 

Oslo is Europe's fastest growing city. Already 80% of norwegians live in cities and urbanisation is accelerating

The fight against climate change will either be won or lost in cities, so it’s crucial to make our urban habitats more efficient, cleaner, and better to live in. The look and feel of cities in the future must and will be different from today: buildings will become smart, consumers become prosumers, travel will become effortless, and cities will be responsive. We cannot throw oil money at the problems. Norway's main income, the oil, has plummeted and the golden years are behind us. 

You can play a leading role in contributing to designing, building, and maintaining our cities of the future. 

At StartupWeekend you will learn the skills of entrepreneurship. And you will be welcomed by a community of innovators that think changing the world is as normal as getting out of bed. Please join us for a weekend of exciting change.

About Startup Weekend: Startup Weekends are 54-hour events designed to provide superior experiential education for technical and non-technical entrepreneurs.  Beginning with Friday night pitches and continuing through brainstorming, business plan development, and basic prototype creation, Startup Weekends culminate in Sunday night demos and presentations.  Participants create working startups during the event and are able to collaborate with like-minded individuals outside of their daily networks. All teams hear talks by industry leaders and receive valuable feedback from local entrepreneurials. The weekend is centered around action, innovation, and education.  Whether you are looking for feedback on a idea, a co-founder, specific skill sets, or a team to help you execute, Startup Weekends are the perfect environment in which to test your idea and take the first steps towards launching your own startup.
