Foreign entrepreneurs can get some help

The City of Oslo’s agency that deals with business matters (Næringsetaten) is now launching assistance to entrepreneurs with a foreign background who want to start new businesses in Norway or already are running one.

The agency has been offering occasional courses in English in how to start a business in Norway. That was expanded to languages including Polish, Turkish and Arabic and now, most recently, Spanish. Norway recently has seen the arrival of large numbers of work immigrants from Spain, because of the euro and debt crises in southern Europe.

The courses now run over three evenings and are free of charge. For more information, go to Næringsetaten’s English-language website (external link). staff
