Oslo Business Forum was founded in January 2016 by Christoffer Omberg and Marius Røed Wang.
Our mission? To help business leaders make better decisions and challenge traditional thinking. We do this by providing insights and critical knowledge needed for success, valuable relationships and implementable ideas.
The first Oslo Business Forum was organized in November 2016, with 850 participants. Over the years the events have grown to be one of the most significant business conferences in Norway.
Oslo Business Forum has grown rapidly; with an average of 2,000-3,000 participants at each conference. In 2018, Oslo Business Forum decided to start an internationalization process, targeting more international participants to its conferences.
In 2019, Oslo Business Forum joined forces with Nordic Business Forum, who attracts 7,500 participants to its annual conference in Helsinki, Finland. Nordic Business Forum acquired 30 percent of the shares of Oslo Business Forum to offer more quality knowledge, networks and tools to our community.
In addition to the new owners, Oslo Business Forum has recruited two new external board members:
We believe that inspiring and equipping business leaders who want to make the world a better place is the single most effective way in which we can make an effect on the whole society at large.
