Validé gets the highest scores from Siva. That will ensure Norway more good and viable industries and companies.


Validé is ranked, together with BTO in Bergen and StartupLab in Oslo, as the best incubator in Norway. These three incubators get equally score from Siva and are the Top3 incubators.

In 2018 Siva developed 20 criteria that will better distinguish between active and successful and not that active enviroment among the næringshager and the incubators throughout the country. In practice, this means a financially larger divide in grants from Siva for the operation of the incubators and the næringshager. There are now five categories, before four, starting at NOK 1 million in grants and NOK 5 million giving full pot and top score.

Siva has valueted Validé's operation, goals and results. Surveys show very good satisfaction from the customers, the incubator's ecosystem works very well because Validé has a network of players and resources that contribute to the incubator companies' development and value creation.

And then the most important results; Validé's incubator companies get high score on annual growth and creation of values.
