We build meaningful tech companies

We are not an incubator, and not a VC firm. Together with great entrepreneurs, we build technology companies from the ground up.

We are a venture builder.
A company that builds companies.

At Norselab, we are passionate about turning ideas that matter into technologies that are ready for take-off.

Based in Oslo, Norway, we are a diverse team of developers, creative technologists, business architects, growth hackers, and serial entrepreneurs with both battle scars and success stories. Every talented member of our team is motivated to build great companies, fueled by our experience and expertise, and the challenge and opportunity at hand.

Our distinct fusion of lean methodologies, robust technical know-how, and insatiable Scandinavian dexterity enables us to unleash the potential of great ideas and turn them into successful ventures that are built to last.

To date, Norselab has spun out six different companies in six countries. And we are just getting started!

Our process

From idea creation to scalable growth

At Norselab, we manage our portfolio of unique startups through a disciplined process, spanning the initial discovery and validation stages all the way through to sustainable growth.

We tailor our approach to best suit the needs of each company, depending on where they are in their own growth stage, the urgency of the product in the market, and the available resources.

  • 1. Discover & Validate

    We either develop a business idea internally or evaluate those that are presented to us from external contributors.

    We quickly validate ideas - or kill them off if they do not meet our robust product/market fit requirements.

    For the ideas we love, we complete highly productive design sprints in which we challenge ourselves to design, prototype, and user-test the ideas in a maximum of five days.

  • 2. Build & Launch

    We craft business plans and positioning strategies.

    We deploy dedicated tech and management teams to run our respective companies.

    We tap into our vanguard investor network to secure seed investments.

  • 3. Grow & Scale

    We partner closely with our individual teams to accelerate their growth.

    We provide a vigorous technical infrastructure and implement validated growth hacking playbooks to create sustainable value for our businesses.

    When capital is needed to fuel growth, we introduce our companies to local and international venture capital firms.
