At OIH's events, many great co-founding stories, cross-cultural friendships, and professional development cases have risen as a result of the overlap between a growth-minded community and organization.


Meet international professionals in a relaxed atmosphere, discuss business, and make friends.

When summer is already on its way, we might get lucky with the weather and the event is hosted in our beautiful garden.

15.30 Mingling starts, 18.00 Time to round up.

Feel free to bring your own beverage and snacks to share and your smile - and invite your business partners, clients, and friends.

This Friday Social event is organized jointly by Oslo International Hub, International Welcome Center, Bærum International Hub, International House, Business Angels Norway, Profesional Women's Network Norway and Oslo International Club.
