March 30 @ 17:30 - 19:00 CEST
Are you an entrepreneur of immigrant or minority background?
Would you like to take part in a conversation to outline, challenge and find solutions to barriers that stand in the way of establishing and growing your business?
We would like to welcome you to join us.
This event aims to gather people and share experiences with regards to starting your own business in Norway as an immigrant or person or minority background.
We are interested in exploring topics such as access to resources and mentorship, securing finances and funding, business development opportunities, and other structural barriers that diverse entrepreneurs face, such as endorsement within, and support by the Norwegian society.

- 17:30-18:00- Panel discussion with guest speakers
- 18:00-18:45- Group experience sharing and conversation.
- 18:45-19:00- Networking and mingling.
