Gaining early press provides a myriad of benefits for new companies. Coverage in a popular Oslo startup blog or newsletter can make the difference between success and failure. It can lead to new customers, large contracts, pilot programs, investment, or even a connection with a crucial co-founder or early employee. Unfortunately, many founders either consider the time costs of press outreach to be too high, or simply believe that it's not necessary, and that their product is so strong and innovative that it will attract customers through natural virality. 

That, however, is usually not how most startups gain traction. Almost every company in the world will eventually find themselves in a position where they need a boost, where they need more exposure. That's when the strong tech media scene in Oslo can be a saving grace. 

In the blog post below, we’ve listed the startup media organizations in Oslo who provide press coverage and inform the local startup community about exciting new companies.
