Our connected world – redefining business

NBAS and Innovation Norway are pleased to invite you to a Breakfast Talk by the Norwegian investor Mr Mikael Krogh, Director and Founder at Investigate, followed by a Pitching Session by five Norwegian tech start-ups.

The world has never been more connected!

Technologies, such as Internet, mobiles, IoT, social media and information flow are connecting and radically changing and redefining businesses and industries. Consequently, every industry will face massive changes going forward.

Sign up to this talk to hear Mr Krogh explain how you can lead this change. He will present how connectivity impacts businesses in two areas:

  1. The business model – how connectivity enables a network orchestrator business model which can have substantial impact on scalability, marginal cost, and profitability of the company
  2. Marketing – how connectivity enables a conversation with clients and partners and changes the premise/rules of marketing

Mikael Krogh has an extensive background from investments and venture capital in addition to taking operational roles in companies and growing their business. This experience has been gained across four continents, Europe, Asia, Australia, and North America, with a considerable insight and network as a result.
