Corporates. Scale-ups. Together. - ONS

Corporates. Scale-ups. Together

From top-down, to bottom-up; we’re matching Scale-ups with all the top Corporate Venture & VCs to make deals, find growth opportunities and create value, together.

Going on 45 years, ONS has focused on new technology & innovation in the energy sector. At ONS 2020 we will expand the platform and bring together even more of the innovators, technologists, and economists who are shaping the next generation super-growth companies within energy, robotics & automation.


For decades, the value-chain surrounding the energy business has been sheltered from creative disruption due to an arsenal of competitive barriers; access to capital, historic exclusivity, customer inertia and insights. But this is no longer. Today, startups and scale-ups are changing the competitive landscape to the point where corporate venturing is no longer a question of if, but how. How can scale-ups and corporate work together to create value? How can digital enablers help make this happen?

This is what we’re bringing to ONS: 

What’s in it for scale-ups:

• One-on-one sit downs with 50+ CVC and VCs

• Be seen by hundreds of investors, corporations and influential innovators

• Leads and sales – this is where you connect with new customers in an informal way

• Meet top digitization, cloud & consulting firms

• Recruitment – find your new co-founder, CTO or tech talent

What’s in it for investors:

• Meet the top startups & scale-ups

• Discover deals, co-investments and network with all the top CVCs and VCs across the Nordics
