Oslo Børs launches the 2023 edition of IPOready Norway


  • 11 companies ready to take part in the pre-IPO program
  • The programme is organised together with Pareto Securities, Advokatfirmaet Thommessen, PwC Norway and Crux Advisers

Oslo - 26 January, 2023Oslo Børs, part of the Euronext Group, today launched the second edition of  IPOready in Norway. IPOready is a leadership programme for executives looking to enhance their skillsets to scale their companies and raise strategic finance. Eleven companies considering listing on Euronext in the coming years will take part in 2023.  

IPOready is part of the Euronext pre-IPO programmes1 and covers the IPO process, the legal perspective, IPO valuation, equity story, financial communication, corporate governance and post-listing requirements. The program is run in partnership with Pareto Securities, Thommessen, PwC and Crux Advisers.

The objective of the IPOready programme is to equip participating companies with an in-depth understanding of all the sources of finance available to them and determine which is most suited to their needs. On completion, the participating founders and entrepreneurs will have the skillsets required to make their businesses investment ready, refine their pitch for investors and form a valuable network of peers, advisors and investors.

This year’s Norwegian IPOready intake includes companies in the technology, cleantech and industrial sectors, such as Akto Eiendom AS, Biomega Group, Fleks AS, Aprila Bank ASA, Flexistore, Heimdall Power AS, Hystar AS, Innomar AS, Jøtul AS and Sanco Holding AS.  

 “After holding the first Norwegian IPOready last year, we are excited to see the interest in the programme this year given the enormous changes in the market conditions. This year’s 11 companies represent different sectors as well as different phases of development, which will give us interesting discussions throughout the programme. Our aim is to provide the companies with a realistic knowledge foundation of what it takes to prepare and go through a listing process as well as what it takes to succeed as a listed company,” says Øivind Amundsen, CEO and President of Oslo Børs.

In addition to local workshops together with the organising partners, the participating companies will attend two European campuses where they will meet 140+ companies from 16 different countries taking part in Euronext’s pre-IPO programmes .
