A place for creators, challengers, thinkers, and pioneers

Mesh opened in 2012 and was the first coworking space in Oslo. It has become the leading independent initiative for Norwegian entrepreneurs and leads the way in bringing important, topical and relevant discussions, talks and conferences. Since our launch we have been creating positive noise to push the startup scene forward, and to modernize its dynamics.
