Achieving Startup - Corporate Collaboration

It takes on average between 7.3 months (corporate view) to 8.7 months (startup view) to reach a signed contract from initial contact* for any type of startup - corporate collaboration.

Meet Startups’ goal is to significantly shorten that time by introducing the right startups to the right companies and provide a space to discuss potential collaboration.

Our Story


Shifter is an independent online newspaper about Norwegian technology companies in the new economy. We will cover small and large in the startup industry, but also follow innovation in larger companies. There are ideas, challenges, money, power, people and good stories everywhere.

We started Shifter because we saw the need to highlight Norwegian startups, andthe shift traditional, established companies need to make to be ableto survive in the digital age.


We founded Spaces in 2008. The idea was to create something that didn’t really exist yet. A place with a good vibe – a work environment that’s fun, efficient, inspiring and productive. Especially when you share it with like-minded others. And that was the start of Spaces. 

Work, given the right fuel, is fun. It gives us meaning, brings food to the table and allows us to express ourselves. Spaces is our attempt to provide that fuel.
