LOOP Ventures Launch in Norway

COO Niina Aagaard speaking at the launch of LOOP 2018

Does your company wish to be a part of LOOP - Venturing for the circular economy?

Then come to Oslo and set up a meeting with Avanto Ventures on 16 January 2019.

On 5 December 2018, Avanto Ventures, Sitra and Nordic Innovation launched LOOP at the last day of Slush. The launch was packed with circular economy startups and companies wishing to embrace the circular economy. This was just the first step for LOOP. The goal is to get the entire Nordics involved and excited about transitioning into a more sustainable region.

With European and national laws focusing on minimising waste and environmental impact, the need for Nordic companies to change their business models and transition into a circular approach has become ever more apparent. With Nordic Innovation's program Nordic Sustainable Business Transformation, the wish is to make the Nordic region the front runner in the fields of sustainability and green solutions. One of the steps in making this happen, is by supporting the venture programme LOOP where circular ideas are turned into concrete actions and business.
