Norway has a very elongated shape, one of the longest and most rugged coastlines in the world, and some 50,000 islands off the extremely indented coastline.
Norway is a country located in Northern Europe on the western and northern part of the Scandinavian Peninsula, bordering the North Sea to the southwest and the North Atlantic Ocean in the west.
Norway is one of Europe's most mountainous countries with large areas dominated by the Scandinavian Mountains. It has a population of 5.2 million people and it's capital, Oslo, is bursting with cultural attractions as well as being surrounded by nature.
Technology in Norway
Whilst Norway's startup scene is understated; in Europe it is certainly overshadowed by London, Berlin and the Netherlands, it's obscurity may be due to the fact that Norwegian startups tend to be based in the B2B sector and not known by the average consumer.
In fact, the 2016 Annual Global Technology Report ranks Norway as 4th ( out of 139) for Network Readiness and company-level technology absorption, 3rd in the world for the availability of latest technologies, and 7th for the extent of staff training, making Norway and enticing location for any technologists looking seeking a change of scenery.
