So, what does the program offer?
You get approx. 30 hours of “practical” teaching (not just theory ;-)) as well as coaching in everything from lean innovation, marketing, communication, sales, administration and accounting, financing, legal issues and the use of technology. By “practical” teaching we mean that you will not only get lots of theory – you will also work with specific cases and get professional feedback on your own project during the program.
You will also develop a good network among the course instructors and the other participants. And last but not least, we help you find a mentor 😉
The course program is compatible with day jobs or studies. In 2019, the entrepreneur classes took place in the evening and Norwegian for Business teaching during the day. Due to Covid, all teaching will now take place digitally and we will ensure that Norwegian teaching can also be taken in the evening.
How did it all start?
In 2019, we developed Get Busy with Your Business in collaboration with Oslo VO (Voksenopplæring), a 3-month program for entrepreneurs. 75% of the participants in 2019 were women and the program was adapted for multicultural background people by offering teaching in Norwegian for business.
Does the program apply to me and my business idea?
This program is relevant and open to all types of diversity, regardless of age, gender and origin as long as you have a desire to start something of your own.
Whether you aim to create a company with a great potential for growth or start your own independent business, you will get the most up-to-date skills to kickstart a business in today’s digital Norway.
Take a look at some of the projects from the Get Busy with Your Business 2019 cohort that were launched in 2020 and which we are assisting further in this crowdfunding campaign: bidra.no/vinc.
How much does it cost?
As a non-profit organization, we have managed to keep your participation at the lowest and registration costs amount to 1,900 NOK (incl. VAT) for the Norwegian for Business course ; NOK 1,900 per month (incl. VAT) for the entrepreneur program (which is held in Norwegian).
