TEAL was founded in 2007. (The name was Ryfylke Næringshage until June 2021) TEAL is part of the nationwide Næringshage program which is administered by the County Municipality and Siva.

By focusing on and strengthening the investment in blue-green industries such as greenhouses and agriculture, aquaculture, local food, tourism and other relevant industries, our main goal is to contribute to increased value creation, growth and development of the business community in the region.

Our contribution to competence development is mostly channeled through the popular Growth Program. But can otherwise be summarized in the following:

Business development and business consulting, with experienced business developers in most areas such as:

Network building, both with accessibility for established networks and the establishment of new ones

Strategy processes

Board work

Accounting and finance

Sales and marketing

Digitalization

Financing and investor search

By virtue of being part of the nationwide Næringshageprogrammet, many of our partners believe that our greatest strength is to be door openers to the many opportunities that the public and private business players have to offer.

It is at the crossroads between business developer-collaboration-network-customer that the exciting interactions take place, and we therefore look at all our business relationships as Partners of TEAL.
