“ Biologists who have ambitions to start up something on their own will have everything they need at ShareLab. Usually, a laboratorium with the same facilities would cost at least 1 million kroner. Here, everything is ready for them. ”

Esben A. Nilssen
Managing Partner
Esben has two goals. Make biotech soar and do backcountry skiing until feet sore. A human Swiss knife, Esben started out with philosophy, did a PhD on cell cycle checkpoints, came to love risk-adjusted NPVs, accidental European Patent Attorney, and a bioentrepreneur for more than a decade.  He may be just the right man to take you through the jungle (or the polar ice, for that sake).

Marius Øgaard
Marius gets his kicks in life from developing stuff. Ideas. Technology. Products. Companies. International markets. So that is how he has spent his long career in Norwegian technology companies. Always developing something new. As the founder of The Life Science Cluster, he has an extensive network of relations in Norway’s bio-based industries. He thinks this will be pretty useful for the ShareLab community!
