Norges Vel contributes to sustainable and nature-based business development nationally and internationally. We are a non-profit initiator that addresses important tasks that do not naturally belong to or is solved by other established systems. We work as a networker that brings together all the players and components needed to succeed in a project. Our methods are well-proven for many years and are the basis for all our projects.
Business development is about realising commercial opportunities in new or existing markets, whether that is in Bergen or Dar es Salaam in Tanzania. Developing a project from idea to launch and implementation is often a demanding process.
Project and process management for business development
Project and process management is part of Norges Vels core competence, and key for achieving success in business development.
When working on projects, we are committed to getting the best out of the individual and the whole, and to manage the interaction between project participants in a way that ensures the best result.
Knowledge sharing through advising, courses and seminars
Information and knowledge sharing has always been an important part of Norges Vel's work. Business development is about processes over time. From the first rough idea emerges until it becomes a reality, it has to go through several phases. Such processes are demanding. Through advising, courses and seminars, we help clients find the answers, whether they need help with idea development, writing up a business plan, access to the market, a new network or the entire project from a - z.
