In Asia, Singapore shines as a hub for Norwegian ambitions. Not only have the well-known giants like Telenor, DNB, DNV, Kongsberg, and Wilhelmsen left their mark here, using Singapore as a springboard for expansion throughout the region, but also smaller Norwegian-owned companies, venture capital funds, and investors find their place in this fortress of innovation, technology, and collaboration-friendly culture. Close to 250 Norwegian companies are established in Singapore, representing one of the highest concentrations of Norwegian business interests in any country outside Norway.

Innovasjon og bærekraft Singapore

Singapore beckons with a vibrant blend of innovation and opportunities, and it's no surprise that Norwegian entrepreneurship feels right at home here. The nation's focus on technological progress and close connections between academia, businesses, and entrepreneurs has drawn a continuous stream of Norwegian players eager to be part of this journey.
