Throwback to previous Creative Tech Hunt’s

The Creative Industries include these sectors: visual, digital & performing arts, music, literature, film & photography, computer games, television & radio, printed media, architecture, design and advertising. CreativeTech is a collective term for technology and/or innovation that scales one or more of these industries. Read more about the term below.

Creative Tech Hunt is a national hunt for the most promising CreativeTech startups in Norway, aiming to create awareness and contribute to growth for the ecosystem of CreativeTech. 657 Oslo has been the initiator and national host since 2015, in cross-collaboration with national partners throughout Norway.

What does CreativeTech really mean?

CreativeTech is a relatively new term and may not be familiar to all of you quite yet. And whilst the influence of the entire creative industry has been fundamental to the emergence of the concept, it does have a certain specificity. It can be defined as “technological solutions and/or digital services related to the development, production, dissemination, sale or distribution of artistic, cultural and creative content.”

This is how it works…

In regional events throughout Norway, handpicked startups will speed-date and pitch for a selected jury representing the local ecosystem. The most promising company from each city will attend the national final at 657 Oslo on November 8th, kicking off Creative Tech Week. A jury will choose a national winner that gets to participate in the international pitch competition Creative Business Cup in Copenhagen Spring 2023.
