About us

The company


In 2010, Ginntech AS was established (Norweb at that time) by Svein Iversen and Agnar Ødegård. Both then worked at Sør-Trøndelag University College. The idea for Ginntech's first product, Edutorium, came as a result of Svein and Agnar being close to the professional staff's frustration over cumbersome processes and poor system support. "There must be a way to do this better!".

The Norwegian higher education sector has undergone a major development in the last 10 years, and Ginntech has been involved all the way. The institutions have undergone mergers, increased digitization and an increasing focus on quality. The close collaboration we have had with our good (and demanding) customers has led to Edutorium today appearing as a mature and robust product. At the same time, Ginntech has taken the step over to new areas. Data analysis, decision support and artificial intelligence have been technical disciplines we have been curious about. New employees have arrived, with experience from new industries. And this is how Ginntech has grown into what we are today. A tech company with more products, a broader customer base and more committed employees.

In 2024, Edutorium will be launched internationally. The first step is to our neighboring country in Scandinavia. This is the start of what we believe will be an international adventure.

Ginntech's Ethical Guidelines


The Transparency Act aims to promote businesses' respect for fundamental human rights and decent working conditions in connection with the production of goods and delivery of services, and to ensure public access to information.

By "fundamental human rights," we mean the internationally recognized human rights as defined by the UN's conventions on economic, social, cultural, civil, and political rights, and by the ILO's (International Labour Organization) conventions on fundamental rights and principles in the workplace.

Ginntech aims to contribute through due diligence within its own company and by monitoring subcontractors. Measures to ensure this are included in this document.

Follow-up within the company

All business activities in Ginntech shall be conducted with the utmost respect for fundamental human rights. We will always offer good working conditions for all employees and respect employees' right to unionize.

Our services, all delivered as SAAS, are considered to fall under the rules of "insignificant climate footprint and environmental impact" in the Transparency Act.

We will have a systematic approach to identifying any potential negative consequences related to our own operations. Initially, a mapping will be carried out and discussed at annual board meetings.

Follow-up with subcontractors

Ginntech will conduct a high-level risk analysis for all purchases over NOK 100,000 per year. The purchase of goods and services should be done with reputable companies that make reasonable efforts to monitor employees' rights and decent working conditions, including in third countries.

Follow-up with customers

In communication with our customers, we will, as far as possible, ensure that their businesses also comply with fundamental human rights and decent working conditions.
