“Everything we do, we do to make life in Western Norway even better. We believe that startups represent the future of Norway, and we are now in a position where we want to contribute even stronger on a national scale. Supporting the Norwegian startup ecosystem and future startups is an integral part of fulfilling our mission.”

“The most exciting part of my job is being part of an ambitious team who always strive to challenge traditional ways of thinking. Whether it’s building a next generation bank from scratch or creating new solutions to help small business grow, we believe we have more to gain than to lose by taking risks and thinking outside the box.”
