FORNY StudENT is a pilot project which aims to have more entrepreneurs and startups based on ideas from students at Norwegian universities and university colleges. After evaluating 53 applications, and 22 student pitches in front of an expert panel, the Research Council of Norway (Forskningsrådet) has recently handed out 1 million NOK each to 15 different startups nationally. With a total of 10 going to NTNU, 9 of these have a direct connection to students at the NTNU School of Entrepreneurship.
We are pleased to see that our students are in the forefront of the new generation of entrepreneurs in Norway. Congratulations again to all of our startups! 🙂
