Xynteo Exchange

Truly facing complex challenges such as climate change and the shifting social contract requires more than an individual or group response - it demands collaborative action.

The Xynteo Exchange / Norway brings together mission-driven leaders and practitioners across business, academia, the arts, and activism to accelerate collaborative action to tackle systemic problems, and re-think growth models that are no longer future-fit.

The Xynteo Exchange Concept

The award winning Xynteo Exchange/Norway is a cross-industry, cross-sector platform designed to connect ideastalent and capital, to generate new growth opportunities that are fit for the future.

Over 36 hours, 500 guests experience three core elements of the Exchange programme: the SquareStudios and the Marketplace. The outputs are then developed over the following year with our partners.
