About IKT Norge & Selmer
IKT-Norge is the non-for-profit business association for the IT industry in Norway, with more than 400 member companies, ranging from start-ups to global tech corporations. With a vibrant and growing membership of financial technology firms, IKT-Norge represents the growing Fintech community in Norway, and aims to make it easier to establish and grow innovative financial services in Norway.
Our Fintech members meet in two networks, Fintech Forum (for Fintech companies) and FutureBank Forum (for Fintechs and financial institutions), where they discuss and work on regulatory issues, political awareness, technological and market trends, international market access visits, and industry events.
Fintech is the most regulated space within the tech sector, and for many smaller companies, the path to becoming a licensed player and understanding the regulatory landscape is overwhelming. This guide is meant as a bridge – a toolbox for navigating and understanding regulatory requirements when operating in the Norwegian market.
We welcome any comments on this toolbox, and invite you to contact us for questions, more information and how to become a member of our association.
We wish you the best of luck on your Fintech journey!
