TOOL Global

Building the Ocean Cities Alliance

Our ambition is to expand the world’s first entrepreneur lab from Oslo to other coastal cities in Norway and abroad.

The physical starting point of TOOL is in the global marine capital of Oslo. More specifically on board the redesigned veteran ferry MS Bjørvika. We aim to build a global ocean-cities alliance to coastal cities in Norway and abroad, expanding the TOOL fleet together with local partners all over the world.
