Nils Eivind Holmedal, senior business developer in BTO, is responsible for the student entrepreneurship program.
– Through our collaboration with the educational institutions in Bergen, we are constantly meeting great students with innovative ideas. These students have a fantastic optimism and desire, which is essential for success in innovative projects. We would love to work with these talented students, and has therefore launched our comprehensive program for student entrepreneurship, he says.
How can we help?
We offer an initial meeting for all students in Bergen who have an innovative idea. During this meeting, the idea will be discussed and the potential evaluated.
The main services we offer to student projects are the innovation program ACCEL Student, facilities and/or incubation, business development and help with funding applications.
In addition, we offer internships for students who are interested in innovation. We usually announce our internships in February/March, and they are scheduled to start in August the same year. The internships will be announced on our website and social media.
