Learn more

In collaboration with InnovationDock in Stavanger, Bergen.Works in Bergen, Work-Work in Trondheim and Coworking Norge, we’re hunting high and low for Norway’s most promising CreativeTech startup. Applications are now open.

Creative Tech Hunt 2021 is now closed for applications. Didn’t make the cut this year? Do not despair – there will be a new chance next year!

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 relevant jury representing the local ecosystem. The most promising company from each city will attend the national final at 657 Oslo on December 1st. A jury will choose a national winner that gets to participate in the international pitch competition Creative Business Cup in Copenhagen Spring 2022.
