Oslo & Norge: Verdens Beste Destinasjon for Havromsgründere

Tanker om havrom, bærekraft og entreprenørskap – og Norges fremtid Næringsministeren la denne uka frem tall som viser at havnæringene bidrar med 500 milliarder fra havet, om lag en fjerdedel av norsk verdiskapning fra næringslivet. Regjeringen konkurrerer nå med opposisjonen om å være mest havnæringsvennlig. Store deler av dagens verdiskapning kommer fra petroleumssektoren. En bransjeContinue reading “Oslo & Norge: Verdens Beste Destinasjon for Havromsgründere”

Opp igjen – Med Passion For Ocean

Etter at jeg brente ut kruttet i fjor har jeg ikke stått på en scene. Jeg har blitt kvalm, stressa og fått pustevansker bare av tanken.

An Asset More Profitable Than Oil… #TEDtalk

Before introducing a really good TEDtalk; Did you know that Norway has made billions based on women’s participation in the labor market?

Kvinner i et Klyngeperspektiv

Det er mye å feire for oss som er opptatt av å øke kvinneandelen i næringslivet og tilgangen på synlige rollemodeller. Men vi har fortsatt en lang vei å gå.
