Our core:


At Norselab, we choose meaningful over hype. To us, meaningful tech ideas are the ones that have the potential of helping our industries move towards the highest standards of compliance, transparency and effectiveness – and become greener on the way, too. Crafting the companies that bring meaningful ideas to life is our very purpose, and all the startups in the Norselab family offer tangible progress towards actual industry challenges. This is also one of the reasons why the companies we co-found have stronger prospects of sustainable success than just any other tech hype.

Our playground:


We believe in technology as our times’ biggest opportunity to build new business. Our pursuit is to meet real-life market needs by bringing avant-gardist technology into traditional industries. This enables us to radically improve efficiency, transparency and compliance within conventional business areas – and sometimes to disrupt entire industries.

Our working principle:


Simplicity defines everything that we do. We create business models and internal structures that are lean. The technologies we build are infinitely efficient and user- friendly. Our entrepreneurial experience also makes company building more straightforward; we have a proven playbook that makes it easier for our startups to turn into robust companies.


Norselab works with top notch investors who share our passion for building the technology companies that stick. By solving real-life industry challenges, our companies create lasting value.
