Fronter has been awarded the Oslo Innovation Award 2012! The award is presented each year during Oslo Innovation Week and goes to a company that succeeds in creating new technologies and more jobs in Oslo. This annual event, which is in its seventh year, is a platform for Global and Norwegian investors, entrepreneurs, scientists and business leaders to gather in Oslo. The week consists of a series of events organised by a number of prominent players.
The topics of innovation and industrial policy, capital and funding of growth projects, innovation created from research and youth entrepreneurship were up for discussion. The aim of this week’s discussions was to bridge the gap between entrepreneurs, investors and experts in order to promote innovation and growth. Value was also high on this year’s agenda.
This is what the event organisers had to say about Fronter and why we were crowned as winners of this great award;
“Fronter gets the award for having highlighted the international competitiveness of the innovation community in Oslo and for creating a leading knowledge-based company through its digital learning platform,” said jury chairman Per Saxegaard.
Fronter has been a pioneer in the development of digital support for education. The platform is well known worldwide and has undergone continuous development. Fronter is used in countries such as England, Northern Ireland, Malta and the Scandinavian countries and are about to make a breakthrough in Latin America. We’re also currently in an exciting initial stage in China!
The company is continually growing. The number of logins reached over 150 million last year! Since the acquisition by Pearson, the world’s leading education company, Fronter has continued to play a central role in the development of digital learning globally.
“Behind the leading learning platform Fronter is a world class technology environment. We have had the opportunity to grow locally and invest in product development. Many of our 30,000 colleagues around the world look to Oslo now that our own company Pearson is shifting its focus from print to digital. We are extremely proud of this recognition from Oslo Innovation Week”, says CEO Nils Olav Sund Teigen in Fronter AS.
