Vilde Kvarberg

Business Development

Vilde has a background from NTNU School of Entrepreneurship School and has worked with business development, marketing and finance in various technology companies and start-up projects. She was one of the co-founders of Easy Intervals.


We have founded and built companies in cooperation with leading industrial companies, such as Statoil and Telenor, as well as research-heavy organizations such as NTNU, SINTEF, the Kjeller institutes. We are a known player in the startup environment in Norway and we have been around for a while. Others trust us, and that we know what it takes. Therefore, when we invest in a company we normally attract other investors also, who want to be part of the company.


We have “done it before” and know which value-adding activities that need to be done in order to attract pilot customers, partners, and investors. We have been through many company inceptions, and know what issues will arise, and how to solve them in the fastest and best way. We have attracted a significant amount of funding for our companies, most often a combination of public grants and investor capital.
