Discussions about creative tech

At the conference we heard from some of the leading companies in creative tech and their experiences from the export program. Questions like “what does it take to succeed?”  “Why is creative tech in the spotlight and why is tech important for entrepreneurs in the creative industry?” were the two big questions our attendees discussed.

The co-founder of 657 Oslo´s own Anniken Fjelberg was moderating two panel discussions about “Innovation in the creative industry” with Vierlive, Crescat, Pazzing and Ntention, and “Scaling in the creative industry” with Tikkio, NoordRights and We Are Learning.
