the story of nordic innovation house


Nordic Innovation House is the host of more than 180 Nordic tech companies. We have experienced significant growth over the past 5 years and have become the cornerstone of a wide Nordic tech collaboration in the Silicon Valley/Bay Area.

We look forward to welcoming new companies to our growing collaborative workspace and diverse range of services.

Our story began in 2011 when Innovation Norway established a soft landing space in the heart of Palo Alto for Norwegian tech startups. The goal was to offer Norwegian companies a workspace and to connect them with the unique entrepreneurial ecosystem in Silicon Valley.

The project gained the attention of other Nordic countries, and by joining forces we believe we can better achieve our common goal of strengthening the Nordic presence and value creation in the highly competitive Silicon Valley environment.

In the fall of 2014, we relaunched as Nordic Innovation House and displayed an exceptional example of five countries coming together over shared values and interests. With a “just-do-it” spirit, we support each other and our companies in creating a recognized brand that has become a model for other organizations around the world.
