The annual Venture Showcase was held on April 13 at the Statoil Business Centre in Stavanger.
13 April. 2016 / Statoil Business Centre, Stavanger, Norway
Among the 140 attendants were 25 O&G start-ups who spent the day pitching to 12 VCs which included BP, Shell, Repsol, SAEV, Chevron and Sumitomo, in addition to Statoil Technology Invest.
The intensive 20 minute ‘speed dates’ made up the bulk of the day, but there was also time for presentations. Fredny Bade, partner and lawyer with DLA Piper, gave an introduction to the importance of protecting the value of IP, while Even Gjesdal, CEO of Cubility, provided a light-hearted account of his company’s struggles to penetrate the market. In addition, Matt Dawson, Investment Manager with STI, gave an inspiring presentation of a new, exciting technology company which is soon to be spun out of Statoil: Reveal. All presentations can be downloaded from the menu on the right.
STI would like to thank all the attendants. We hope you had a productive day and that you will be successful in your endeavours.
The Venture Showcase will return next year – meanwhile look out for the upcoming Technology Showcase. The date is yet to be set, but we aim for November.
