What can we do for you?
MTI Startup is an early stage investment company, strategically located in the Research Park at USN Campus Bakkenteigen in Vestfold. Here we are co-located with Innovation Norway, Silicia technology incubator, a number of research laboratories, and a large ecosystem of technology companies. Together with our partners, we help an entrepreneur from idea through startup and growth to exit.
This is not a fund. All our investors have extensive experience from start-up businesses, and have a very active role in the selection and follow-up of each company.
Feel free to contact us if you are a potential co-investor with the same mindset/criteria as us.
The incubator has a good offer for all entrepreneurs, and especially those who work towards electronics, micro- and nanotechnology.
