Trine Skei Grande (V) believes that Norway needs more female entrepreneurs who create green jobs. On Friday, she visited the dress rental shop Fjong.
The clothing rental service, which is essentially a digital platform, also has a showroom at Skillebekk in Oslo where Grande met with entrepreneur Sigrun Syverud on Friday.
“I am deeply impressed with how Fjong combines sustainability and business. We need more such female entrepreneurs who create green jobs,” says the Minister of Culture and Gender Equality, who in the future wants to make use of the dress rental scheme.
Grande believes it is too slow to recruit more female entrepreneurs in Norway. On Monday, she and Minister of Industry Torbjørn Røe Isaksen (H) present a new action plan for women entrepreneurs.
The Minister of Culture and Gender Equality further says that the government must also come back to a possible improvement of the option scheme when the state budget is presented.
