NTNU School of Entrepreneurship has recently been a popular stop for many Norwegian politicians. Just a few weeks after the honorable visit from the Minister of Education and Research, Torbjørn Røe Isaksen (C), the NSE was once again ground for deep curiosity and amazement from the top political heads in Norway.

Monica Mæland (C), Minister of Trade and Industry cleared out part of her schedule when visiting NTNU, just to listen to some of the startups incubated at NSE. After the short pitches, from GEM with the unique CERN Radon technology, Voico, the SINTEF supported noise canceling venture, and feat.fm, the unique viral live concert platform,  she could not help but proclaim that this was somewhat both impressing and outstanding.


Jonas Gahr Støre (Lab.), the former Minister of Health Care and Minister of Foreign Affairs, visited Trondheim this week to give a speech about future healthcare services. The prominent candidate to become the next Labour Party leader, showed a great interest in the unique entrepreneurship hub that NSE represents, and stayed for a short pitch from Voico. Impressed by the well conducted pitch, he stated “Exciting! All devoted students in Norway should apply to the NTNU School of Entrepreneurship”.

What are you waiting for? Listen to Jonas Gahr Støre.
Apply the NTNU School of Entrepreneurship before the deadline 15th of April.
