Startup morning – How to succeed with crowdfunding

We are inviting all our start-up members to a digital breakfast meeting!

This is an informal meeting where we will update you on the latest from the cluster and present our services and activities relevant to you as a startup member. We also find it very important that you as startup members get to know each other better, both by sharing thoughts and experiences.

This time, we will discuss how to succeed with Crowdfunding in the Seafood Industry. Paul Birger Torgnes from Torghatten Aqua, together with his team, have set a new crowdfunding record at As of today, they have raised over NOK 58 million, with 8 days left of the campaign. Paul Birger will now tell us about their background for raising capital through folkeinvest and their experiences with the financing method. Afterwards, you will have the opportunity to participate in a Q&A.

We will finish with a presentation from a crowdfunding platform, where you will also get the opportunity to participate in a Q&A.
