Vice Mayor for Business Development visited BTO

This week the Vice Mayor for Business Development in Bergen Kommune, Helge Stormoen (FrP), visited BTO, Nyskapingsparken and Connect Vest. He heard from all three institutions and he also met several of the entrepreneurs.

– We talked about how BTO contributes to help researcher bring their innovations to society. We also discussed how BTO, Nyskapingsparken and Connect Vest work together to create an environment that effectively facilitate innovation. We are pleased that the Vice Mayor wants to learn more about what we do and our role in the Bergen region, says Anders Haugland, Managing Director at BTO.

Helge Stormoen spent almost half a day at Marineholmen. The Vice Mayor was impressed with what he learned.

-I have extensive business experience myself and I know the challenges your customers face. The environment and guidance that you offer is very valuable. The interaction between the different players brings the entrepreneurs forward. It is obvious that you succeed with this at Vitensenteret, said Helge Stormoen.
