Norway’s largest meeting place for entrepreneurs and investors
Getting investment capital is one of the most important but also the most time-consuming activities that a growing start-up does, and it takes time to build the company. The eco-system for unlisted companies is fragmented and unclear.
To make it easier to meet and attract investors, we have launched DNB NXT Arena together with CrowdWorks – a digital meeting place for investors and entrepreneurs.
In general, this mainly involves using support schemes, obtaining equity and applying for loans. It can be difficult to get an overview of the different opportunities and what the ideal combination of equity and debt is. In this process, we want to be a good adviser as a bank.
Loan financing makes sense when you have the ability to pay down debt and the ability to place collateral for the loan. Loans can be provided by the government, banks and private investors. Common to these is an assessment of the risk and your ability to be able to repay the loan.
In recent years, crowdfunding has grown sharply in Norway. Equity-based crowdfunding or loan-based crowdfunding will generally be most applicable during a growth phase.
