Make a difference by helping startups in Norway create tomorrow's jobs
City Invest
How it all Works
People invest small amounts into a large pool together with many other people in their neighborhood, city or region.
The money will be invested in the top 10 most promising startups to create new jobs in the next years.
The goal is to create jobs for people in Norway, help our new businesses grow, and if they succeed - as a community member you have helped create a job for your cousin, daughter, friend, and your neighbor.
To help our job creators AKA startups, we need to come together as a community to provide much needed investment into the startups with most potential to create many jobs for us in the next years.

1. You can give money from 500 NOK and upwards.
2. The money will be placed in a large pool together with many other community members.
3. The money will be invested in a portfolio of startups (5-10 startups) by Norwegian startup experts. Our experts will pick startups that have the highest potential to succeed and create NEW jobs in the upcoming years for those living in Norway.
4. The experts who handle the pool will take their shares at a point to give return on your initial investment. If 100 people gave money to the pool, it will be split based on how much money each person gave.
