  • Published 27/08/2015
It is time to get serious as the 25 teams in the Nordic Independent Living Challenge begin the business development stage with a three-day working session in Oslo.

After being carefully selected by the Nordic jury, the 25 most promising teams left in the Nordic Independent Living Challenge will begin the business development stage. The teams will meet up in Oslo 30 August to 1 September for a three-day working session where they will work closely with experts and mentors to start developing their solutions even further.


During the working session, the teams will need to clarify and plan the next steps in their product and business development, reflect on their respective critical issues, as well as start building a relationship with the cities. The teams will need to prepare a three-minute pitch as a starting point from which to work.


In the business development stage of the Nordic Independent Living, the teams go through exciting work together with experts and mentors to develop their solutions towards the testing stage, which will begin in 2016. It will be exiting to follow the progress of the teams until the final pitching session in Stockholm in December.
