As the year is coming to an end, we would like to make a short update, and wish you all, all the best for 2017!
Since we signed the contract with Entra in June, got free wifi from Telia, and all our office furnitures from Schibsted Growth we now have 26 startups seated in our coworkingspace and in our studios. Thank you a billion times! As of today all offices except one big one is taken, and we have a waiting list. It takes time to build a startup village, most important are the people, you, and we are on our way!
In December we were granted permission from the Municipality of Oslo to start building our Workbar and the TSV reception. We have a daily manager ready, Rune Kvernmo and we have passed the test “Etablererprøven”. If everything goes as planned the Workbar and reception will open by the end of February 2017! Stay tuned!
We would like use the opportunity to thank alle people involved in making Tøyen Startup Village as it is today! It’s a long list of fantastic people!
