We have competence and experience in technologies such as digitisation, automation, robotisation and artificial intelligence (AI) based on use of large amounts of data, machine learning etc. 

The technology contributes to develop new industries that are complex and difficult for others to copy. Several companies in this category experience high value creation with a large growth potential.

Since 2015, the city's startup development oranisations (SDOs), including workplaces, incubators, clusters and accelerators, have grown rapidly. In 2021, we broke every city record, with an all-time high of new establishments, and has become the second largest city in Norway for startups per capita, placing us ahead of both Trondheim and Bergen, and only beaten by our capital, Oslo.
