Our next guest is one of the most respected opinion leaders within tech and innovation in Norway, and also one of the most inspiring people we´ve ever met.

Anita Krohn Traaseth is the CEO of Innovation Norway, the Norwegian Government's most important instrument for innovation and development of Norwegian enterprises and industry.

With her energy and positive yes, we can- attitude she has contributed in making Innovation Norway more visible and making them an important voice in the ongoing discussions on the restructuring of Norwegian industry.

With innovation and entrepreneurship becoming a key national issue with the falling oil price, and the consequence this has had on a lot of industries, Anita has taking a front positon in voicing how we can increase our chances of finding new industries that can support our society in the future. She is not afraid to say her mind which has helped open deeper discussions on topics that are often shied away from.

Having been named as one of the top 50 most inspirational women in European tech in 2016, we cannot wait to have her joining us in June.
