Develop your startup investing skills

Investing in early-stage startups is exciting, but is often different from traditional investments.

For seven evening workshops you get to work shoulder to shoulder with likeminded angel investors on a group of pre-screened startups. Learn how to navigate through pitfalls and mitigate risks that can affect your investment deals. You work together in groups, selecting and helping the startups to meet your criteria before selecting 3-5 startups that you follow throughout the program, negotiate deals with and help to fundraise.

Develop your tool box of best practice knowledge on the mechanics and processes of investing in startups and be part of a local and nordic network of angel investors.
