Start your fundraising journey

Innovation Norway and Angel Challenge has partnered up to support more Norwegian founders with skills and experience on how to attract investors to their company and how to build international growth companies.

The Fundraising for Startup Program is a six-week program for early stage companies in Norway with the ambition to grow and expand their business. The program is addressed to startups that want to grow through fundraising and will help you become fundraising ready by preparing you to successfully go through investor meetings and the due diligence process.

The Fundraising for Startup Program is the first stage in the Angel Challenge fundraising cycle. You will develop a structured approach to fundraising for your startup, build an investor ready deal and attract investors.

You will learn by doing


We use the ‘learning by doing’ methodology. Participants learn to become fundraising ready by developing plans for their business and setting their company for growth, by preparing for due diligence and deal negotiations, and by training their communication skills towards investors and stakeholders.
