We live in a world of abundance. Awash in knowledge, talent, technology and capital, we have what we need to build a thriving world, underpinned by a new growth model. But outdated, misdirected or, in some cases, straight-up bad leadership is holding us back, squandering these resources instead of securing the highest human return. At the heart of the challenge is this: obsolete metrics, mindsets and approaches that prevent talent and capital from connecting with the problems that matter.
The award winning Xynteo Exchange/Norway is a cross-industry, cross-sector platform designed to connect ideas, talent 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 Square, Studios and the Marketplace. The outputs are then developed over the following year with our partners.
Interactive plenaries to challenge accepted wisdom and inspire action.
A curated marketplace to connect and scale up existing initiatives.
Open innovation workshops to seed commercial solutions to human problems.
Our tribe is a unique one, made up of leaders and practitioners from the worlds of industry, policy, arts & culture, start ups, NGOs, academia and design.
Last year, 506 guests from 40 nationalities and 260 global organisations attended, including 10 global CEOs and 45 from the C-suite. Nearly 40% were also under 40 years of age.
Noted 2019 speakers and participants will be announced soon!
As is tradition, we will once again kick off the 2019 Xynteo Exchange with a pre-event social gathering called the Xynteo Starter– a free event open to the public. The Xynteo Exchange/Norway will be held on 09-10 October.
All times and programming details are subject to change.
The Xynteo Starter is a social gathering where we celebrate the role of arts and culture in challenging the growth model we need for the 21st century. Ticketing information will be updated shortly.

Our Marketplace is an immersive, curated experience designed to meaningfully connect and scale up future-fit ideas. Over two days, Marketplace is split into two complementary experiences – Marketplace projects and Marketplace live!
A showcase of 50 projects and businesses that prove a different growth model is possible. Businesses also vie for the Impact Maker award, worth €50,000.
The space is re-set and re-vamped into a lively hawker-style marketplace, to maximise the opportunities to connect and network.
Studios are open innovation workshops designed to seed commercial solutions to human problems. Our 500 guests are split across six studios, each built around a dedicated theme and pre-selected problem statements.
Here is the current roster of this year’s Studios. (Studio sponsors and themes will be updated throughout the year.)
We’d love to hear from you!
