Mediekuben – Developing new technology in Media City Bergen

A place for development, network and great perspectives. Mediekuben is the only start-up environment for media and tech companies in Norway. With views over Bergen and its mountains – startups and more established companies work side by side developing innovative ideas into new products and services.

Guilty – a digital agency who combines technology and design – is one of several more mature companies situated in Mediekuben.

– We heard about a new exciting concept being established at Media City Bergen. As founders, we liked the idea about sitting together with other likeminded people. We wanted to be a part of a high-tempo environment with a good sharing culture. The fact that it was in Media City was another factor that made us want to be a part of it, says Co-founder of Guilty, Morten Hovland.

Guilty have six employees with a mix of designers, concept developers and programmers. They help customers with everything from design profile and branding, to strategy and developing webpages and more complex software.


«Nothing beats hungry founders that can deliver equivalent services as the major players in the market.»

– Mediekuben gives us access to a unique network as well as both professional and strategic advisers. The members are open to help each other succeed. In addition, there is other companies here that complement us. This again contributes to that we together can deliver a broader specter of services to our customers. Nothing beats hungry founders that can deliver equivalent services as the major players in the market, Hovland says.

– The environment is unique, something you don’t get many other places. Everything is on place, and you try to contribute to other companies success.

– We work together with the tech company Nurofy and Visual Storyteller JHåland, also members of Mediekuben. They are skilled people who complement our business area well.

– To have people in the environment who have been through one or more establishments is of big value to our fresh founders. The experienced members are an important supplement to the counselling the founders get through the program in Mediekuben, says Tor-Arne Fanghol, Business Developer at Bergen Teknologioverføring.
