Oslo Innovation Week 2020: Scaling ocean and energy technologies

During this year’s digital edition of Oslo Innovation Week, Argentum hosted a session on how to scale ocean and energy technologies.

Argentum’s CEO, Joachim Høegh-Krohn, introduced the panel session where he focused on private equity’s role in scaling Norwegian companies within the energy and maritime sectors.

“Many of the companies in our portfolio possess the ideas, the solutions, and the technology to solve the challenges we face today and in the future. These companies have the potential to conquer the Norwegian market, and some of them are already market leaders here. With private equity funds onboard, they can release their potential and win over new markets. They can become international champions,” Høegh Krohn said.

The other participants in the session were Gunnar Birkeland, Unitech Energy; Gareth Burns, Equinor Venture; Kaare Helle, DNV GL; Trine Loe, DNB; and Astrid Skarheim Onsum, Aker Offshore Wind. The moderator was BI Norwegian Business School’s Dilek Ayhan.

Argentum hosted the session together with BI and Oslo Business Region. You can watch a recording of the event here.
