Why Oslo, Norway?

With one of the world’s longest coastlines and a history closely linked to the ocean, Norway has developed one of the strongest hubs for ocean tech expertise. Many of the world’s leading companies within shipping, subsea and aquaculture are based her. Norway is therefore a natural hub for Katapult Ocean. Oslo is also the fastest growing European city and the ideal launchpad for your impact-focused business. Here, you can tap into a highly educated population with extensive capital and expertise in global issues. This is in addition to the high-quality international mentors, who will fly in to meet you in Oslo. Perhaps most importantly, Norway is a country based on trust. This is one of the Katapult Accelerator’s most important values and we know you’ll feel that sense of trust the moment you hit the ground here.

With the best talent – wherever they are. We source globally.
