The Norwegian Møre and Romsdal County is a rural region with about 265 000 inhabitants and a population density of 18.3 inhabitants per square kilometre. Not exactly a hot spot for entrepreneurship at first sight, right?

With the first line service for entrepreneurs, hoppid.no, the region has been offering help for start-ups since 2007. However, times are changing, and in order to reach new entrepreneurs, we decided to go digital.

After two years in development, the digital tool for supporting start-ups was launched in November 2019, and since then the tool has been frequently used by our entrepreneurs and advisors. In March, when COVID-19 put Europe into lockdown, this tool proved to be crucial in keeping the first line service for start-ups going, and also to prevent start-ups from going under with the crisis. 

The digital tool keeps us closer to entrepreneurs, and entrepreneurs get a service that is available 24-7. This is the future for developing services adapted to the needs of start-ups.

If we could do it, you can do it, and we will share our experiences and show you how.

Malene Aaram Vike, who will present this session, is Project Manager for the Interreg Europe project OSS - One Stop Shop, and also in charge of the development of the digital tool for supporting start-ups.
