Startup Guide Trondheim

Trondheim may be small, but the mighty Norwegian city is punching above its weight in terms of its startup scene.



Work in Trondheim and you will find it easy to connect with smart people across many industries. The Norwegian city’s many coworking spaces and incubators that have popped up over the past few years have made it easy for innovative and creative types to connect with one another and establish themselves.


Some of the biggest tech companies in the city are Nordic Semiconductor, ARM and Atmel, all of which are involved in the thriving Trondheim maker community. Add established industries, a healthy public sector, many grassroot movements, engaged academia and practical entrepreneurship to the mix, and you have a collaborative ecosystem fit to compete.
