Incubation and coworking spaces

Our incubator Nyskapingsparken guides start-up companies to help them grow in a faster and safer way.

Nyskapingsparken is open for applications twice a year, with deadlines in August and February. The incubator mainly accepts innovative start-up companies and projects with growth potential.

Nyskapingsparken is located together with BTO at Vitensenteret in Marineholmen Science Park, and has 23 offices, meeting rooms and social spaces.

The incubator is targeted at newly established companies from educational and research environments in Hordaland, and entrepreneurs with knowledge-intensive business ideas. Their ideas must be innovative and have a high growth potential.

Nyskapingsparken was established in 2007, and BTO is responsible for operating the incubator. It is owned by BTO, Bergen University College (HiB), Norwegian School of Economics (NHH), Hordaland County, The City of Bergen and SIVA.

– Our office culture is important to us. We want our clients to share their ups and downs, and help develop each other’s projects. You will seldom find a closed door in our office. We believe that knowledge exchange is one of the keys to success as an entrepreneur, says Hilde Indresøvdre, General Manager of Nyskapingsparken Incubator.
