Student with your own idea?

With your own idea

Are you a student in Northern Norway and have a good idea for a product or service, but you do not quite know what to do next?


Without own idea

Do you want to create your own workplace and design solutions for a better future – but lack of a business idea?



Do you want to know more about what entrepreneurship and innovation are or how to come up with a good business idea?

Who are we?

Student IX is a free incubator for students in Northern Norway. The incubator is for those who want to start their own business and those who have already established a company. We are a gathering place for young entrepreneurs in northern Norway, no matter which university or college you belong to in the region.

How do we work?


 We offer advice in the phase your idea is in. It does not have to be completed before you come to us, we have experience in developing ideas in the early phase. 


We hold relevant courses in business development, financing and customer understanding. The courses give you what you need to get started, or continue working with your start-up company.

Office space

We have several hot desks in our premises that you can use. Here you will sit close to other entrepreneurs, but also business developers in Norinnova who can assist whenever you need it.

I have an idea, what’s next?

When you have an idea, you can get in touch via the contact form and you will arrange a meeting with one of our business developers. Your idea is treated confidentially. We guide you at the stage your idea is in, and it is never too early to get in touch.

I have no business idea, but I want to work in a startup. What do I do?

You do not have to have your own idea to work in a start-up company. Contact us and sign up for one of the courses we offer. Here you may also meet someone who needs you and your expertise in their company.

Is it possible to combine startup and studies?

It is perfect to combine startup with studies, but it can require some form of structure. A good tip is to talk to your associate professors and ask about the possibility to combine assignments in subjects with work in the company.
