Level 39 Technology Accelerator

Sporting Rivalries: Level39 host Norway's Leading Innovators

10 September 2014 14:54


The team at Innovation Norway have put together a cohort of nine startups who are travelling to London as part of the TEA Communications accelerator programme. Innovation Norway are much like UKTI, in that they promote the country’s business interests abroad, and lauding the nation as a destination for commerce.

Over the last two days, the nine young companies have received mentoring from experienced professionals and entrepreneurs such as Helene Panzarino , Rob Shimmin , Matt Hodkinson , Paul Doran and Head of Level39 Eric Van der Kleij.

When asked about the advice he gave, Eric Van der Kleij explained that ”I talked to them about failure, and how that is a necessary part of running an entrepreneurial business.”

For fans of the England football team, hopefully Norway’s first eleven will have to heed Eric’s advice come 22:00 this evening…
