in partnership

with MESH

MESH has partnered up with Telenor in order to connect MESH members to one of the most successful corporations Norway has to offer. As one of the largest mobile operators in the world, with 170+ millions customers globally Telenor has market reach, network and resources that few companies can compare to. Through this partnership, we aim at connecting our members to the possibilities these resources offer.

As part of Telenor’s new innovation strategy, the company aims at becoming a global service provider of digital products. At MESH, Telenor wants to connect with startups building services that fit well into the portfolio of services to offer to their clients either through light cooperation or strategic partnership.

Specific resources for MESH members:

  • Explore ways for some of the startups at MESH to have both a faster and better market launch by working together with Telenor, e.g. Telenor being an early customer
  • Provide MESH members with expertise and market insight to solve relevant issues (e.g. how to work with large cooperations, technology, marketing, business development and project management)
  • Establish and implement joint projects for mutual value creation between Telenor and MESH members
  • Access to technical platform for open innovation on standardised APIs

If you are currently working with an idea that may benefit from cooperation with Telenor or just have questions that they may help you with, please contact Andreas Johnsen, Erik Skotvedt or Gisle Pedersen.

They are generally working at MESH on Mondays (after breakfast meetings as a minimum) and you may also pay them a visit at Fornebu.
