Our vision? Building leaders who change the world.

What we do

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.

Since the beginning of 2016, we have been passionate about providing business leaders with actionable tools and ideas to grow as leaders. We're doing this with our OBF Leadership Platform. Once a year we gather leaders to our annual business conference to learn from world class speakers and interact with peers.

LONG STORY SHORT

Our story

Oslo Business Forum was started in January 2016, by the two co-founders Christoffer Omberg and Marius Røed Wang, two students from BI Norwegian Business School. The purpose was to challenge the status quo in the Norwegian business community. 

Ten months later, the first conference was organized in November 2016. Sir Alex Ferguson, the manager of Manchester United through 26 years, was the first keynote speaker, in front of 850 guests at Oslo Concert Hall.

Since then, our annual business conference has grown to be one of the most significant business conferences in the world. In four short years, we have accomplished some major milestones we are proud of. Speakers such as President Barack Obama, Randi Zuckerberg, David Cameron and Gary Vaynerchuk have already guested our conference as keynote speakers.

In May 2019, we were partly acquired by Nordic Business Forum, one of the most noteworthy business conferences in the world. In September 2020, we are organizing our upcoming conference Rethinking Business, where we gather 3,000 business leaders from all around the world.

Company goal

Becoming the most significant business conference in the world within 2023
