Financial partners Sparebanken Sør, DNB and Nordea have embraced the idea of a greenhouse and contributed financially to its realization.

“As a large regional bank, and the fifth largest bank in Norway, our vision is to contribute to growth in our region. When Bjarne Skeie asked us to support the greenhouse, it was easy to say “yes”. We love the initiative and hope to see more local companies grow as a result of this pre-incubator”, says Regional Bank Manager Carl Dversnes at Sparebanken Sør.

“At DNB we are committed to supporting entrepreneurs. In a region that is greatly affected by the decline in the oil & gas industry, we are excited to be part of a greenhouse for great ideas. We look forward to seeing new jobs created as a result of this initiative”, says Relationship Manager Andreas Eriksen at DNB.
