Ervin Draganovic

Head of Product at TIDAL and WiMP

"I like seeing other people build amazing products, which I sadly do not have time to do myself. Moreover, start-ups have the amazing opportunity to be tremendously agile, and it’s always great to be close to teams that live by the start-up mantra of “Screw it let’s do it”!"

Nina Nedreaas

Founder / Creative at Clue Company

"It’s crucial for everyone working in music, tech or marketing to stay updated with trends and tendencies in these fields – because of the constant change. As a mentor, I will get valuable insight into what might be the next big thing – so there was no doubt in my mind when I was asked to do this. As a bonus, the energy and passion that start-ups and entrepreneurs generally possess is highly infectious. I will do my very best to share my knowledge and experience with the candidates. This is going to be fun!"

Laila Dahl

Norwegian Industrial Property Office

"IP tools such as trademarks, design registrations and patents may create enormous value for their owners if they are used effectively. However, it seems like some Norwegian start-ups do not fully utilize the potential that lies in strategic use of IP systems. As a MashUP mentor from the Norwegian Industrial Property Office, I want to build competence in this area in order to promote innovation and value creation. I also hope to raise awareness on the importance of IP risk assessment and to give some general advice on what common pitfalls to avoid."
