What is an accelerator?

Accelerator, which causes the speed to increase.

Our accelerator program is a program that gives students whatever background the knowledge they need to succeed with their idea.

Here you get the resources and tools you need to succeed with your idea.

It is perfect for those who have a idea sprout or a problem you want to solve – either alone or together in a team!

Psst: We have two programs – one for you with an idea, and one for you without! 

Whether you have an idea or not, you can learn more about entrepreneurship with us. 

What do you get out of the programs?

The knowledge to start your own business

There's a lot to know before you start your own company. Everything can not be learned through a theoretical approach, one needs practical experience. Here you get not only the knowledge, but help to find what you actually have to think about - not everything is as important at first.

Get to know other entrepreneurs

Networking is one of the most important things for an entrepreneur. It's hard to start anything alone, but with more people around you taking the same journey, things always get a little easier.

Access to resources and documents

It's terribly boring to reinvent the wheel and Google is a jungle. Through the program, you get access to most of the guides and resources you need to get started faster.

The programs are suitable for?

All students in Oslo

The programme is open to all students in Oslo, regardless of campus or field of study

For those who want to learn

The most important thing you need to take with you is a desire to learn more. Curiosity is the key to success.

Regardless of idea

You don't have to have an idea to join the accelerator. Depending on whether you have it or not, the program is structured slightly differently - level 1 and level 2.

How does level 1 work

We meet 2 hours a week for 4 weeks online, where we have workshops focusing on different topics. We send out material like podcasts and reading material. The program is for all students who want to learn more about entrepreneurship, or need inspiration to dare to explore your idea further, either in a team or alone.

What is entrepreneurship?

There are lots of buzzwords and fancy talk about innovation and entrepreneurship. We're trying to make it a little less mysterious.

Build your dream team

It is difficult to implement everything alone so it is important that one manages to convey the idea and vision to others. The art of building teams is a key for future growth.

From idea to reality

We provide you with tools to find problems, create solutions, and evaluate whether the idea can be bet on.

How to build networks

There are many people to talk to for tips and advice, but it can be difficult to know who they are. We will help you open new doors.

What is entrepreneurship and innovation?

How does Level 2 work

We meet one evening a week for 8 weeks, where we have workshops focusing on different topics. We send out material like podcasts and reading material. The program is for all students in Oslo who have an idea spire or a problem they want to solve, and who want to learn more about entrepreneurship, either in a team or alone.
