Moving out of the “oil shadow”, Norway has to take advantage of emerging new opportunities in a turbulent, but also expanding and fast growing global market. A good advice is of course to learn from, and network with, experienced international investors and entrepreneurial trendsetters.

For international investors the opportunities are many in one of the world’s wealthiest countries. Success is however dependent on getting in contact with the right persons and groups. Norway is a small and transparent country, which has its advantages and disadvantages.

What is needed for Norwegian investors to invest more of their money in international ventures? Why is it so that it seems so difficult for visionary Norwegian entrepreneurs to get financing, especially when they aspire to expand globally, whether it is funding from national or international sources?

For Norwegian investors and entrepreneurs, the most urgent challenge is to wake up to a reality of new global trends before the future train leaves. This is most obvious when it comes to financial instruments as crowd-funding, new technology, ownership models and even completely new ways of economic thinking and exchange of values towards a sustainable and ecological future society.

The framework for a successful collaboration is the country’s high standard within business ethics, equality, trustworthiness and flexible leadership style, not to mention the recent spurt in innovation, in addition to a well-fare system that creates a predictable environment for businesses and all kinds of transactions and agreements in private and public sector alike.
