Our vision is to be a driving force for tomorrow’s value creation, by helping to establish, develop and preserve jobs in the region. The company works actively with entrepreneurs, business people, government agencies, academic and research institutions, with the aim to create sustainable solutions for the future. Our business mission is to contribute to the commercialisation of innovative ideas that provide growth and employment.
We are a non-profit organisation that makes a difference for creators of new ideas by challenging and supporting them, in order to commercialise their ideas.
Our values describe how we should exercise our role in encounters with others and in our communication in general. We must be committed, opportunity-oriented, inclusive and reliable.
We provide objective advice, connect the right expertise, partners and financial supporters to the companies.
We are placed together with several players in innovation and entrepreneurship.
«Innoventus Sør has taken and is holding an important position as an innovation company in the Agder county and nationally. Our company has built up a unique organisation and a national network with solid experience and knowledge to be able to contribute to entrepreneurship of innovators succeeding in starting and building new business.
Innoventus Sør is an important player in the interaction between the private and public sectors. The company’s knowledge and handling of existing instruments is of great help both for business founders who start new companies, and for existing companies in the process of their restructuring or working with innovation projects.
The company’s employees have developed an impressive, dynamic and motivating culture that Agder county, SIVA, as well as the national government agencies, have shown to value highly. Integrity, knowledge and broad experience in development and innovation work characterise the organisation’s culture.
With good results and a large project portfolio during an intense restructuring period, Innoventus Sør will be an important and necessary contributor to the industrial restructuring we now have to go through. With the United Nations’ sustainability goals as a guideline, the skilled employees in Innoventus Sør will be the central players for innovation in Kristiansand, Arendal and Grimstad, as well as in the rest of Agder. In collaboration with the county, SIVA, University of Agder (UiA), the company Innovation Norway, the Research Council of Norway and the rest of the national policy institutions, we are well equipped for future innovation processes.»
