A cooperation program called StartWireless has been initiated in Norway between leading technology players in the area of wireless communications, aimed at helping newly started companies through the entire production process, according to Hugin.
The StartWireless partners are Telenor Mobil, Systek, Eurodis Electronics, Kitron Development and Sigma ProVentus. The parties are focused on technical systems development and project design. Due to its large network of contacts in wireless communications - both on the user side and in the acquisition of capital - StartWireless has access to additional expertise in business development, market development, patenting, production and industrialization. Small and medium-size companies in the areas of electronics, IT and telecom will also benefit from this cooperation.
"By providing free-of-charge technical evaluation of ideas that are submitted and offering access to laboratory facilities and test environments, we believe that we can attract the best projects," says Björn Meek, President of Sigma's Norwegian company, Sigma ProVentus.
"After assessing an idea, we can put the innovator in contact with persons with the appropriate expertise to quickly take the project further," he concluded.
