MAK X INTERNATIONAL CONFERENCE IN OSLO, NORWAY

20 - 21 April, 2018

MAK X | BUILDING BRIDGES 2018

Norway’s most international and diverse innovation and entrepreneurship arena

 MAK X is an independent international conference with a specific aim to help build bridges between nations in the fields of innovation and entrepreneurship and to enforce our effort to create Norway’s – and later Scandinavia’s- most international and diverse arena for innovation and entrepreneurship.

The conference is an opportunity to learn from the best. We embarked on a journey to bring MAK X to Oslo because we knew it would be an opportunity of a lifetime for our community. We’re hoping that people will continue to take an interest, and we’re confident you’ll like what you see.
