It is a well known fact that Norway is lagging behind in the race of creating growth companies. Our Ocean Tech Scaling Program, is designed to unlock rapid growth in companies.

This growth program offers your company the opportunity to upgrade your business, develop your growth strategy, and expand your network through 5 modules taking place in Bergen, Oslo and Boston.

Common for all the previous participants is that they were all companies that needed to test their growth strategies and that was advised and guided by great national and international mentors through this program.

The program is a collaboration between the Martin Trust Centre for MIT Entrepreneurship in Boston, Scaling Lab and GCE Ocean Technology, and it is funded by Agenda Vestlandet at Sparebanken Vest.

Great lectures, good discussions and a lot of social interaction throughout the week. All in all a great experience!, Additech AS.
