Meet the Angel Challenge Team!
In our quest to build a stronger ecosystem and diverse investing scene, strength and diversity should be reflected in our own teams.
We are proud to boast a team of 17 individuals with a wealth of different backgrounds. Maja, our CEO is a major player in the startup ecosystem in Norway and has filled the team with a brilliant combination of characters.
The majority of our team are from all four corners of Norway. In the last year, we have become much more international with team member heritages including: Russian, Spanish, South African, British, Filipino, Indian, Belgian and Jamaican to name a few!
Last month we celebrated International Women's Day, with a female majority of 65% in our Angel Challenge & Startup Extreme teams. We would love to see more women and minority groups in the Norwegian startup ecosystem and most specifically as entrepreneurs and investors.
An article in The Economist tells us that private wealth held by women is on the rise and that women bring with them a new method of investing. "Studies suggest that women are more risk-aware than men, less likely to be deluded about their financial competence, and more interested in “sustainable” investing (aiming not just at financial returns but also at social or environmental goals). The planet will profit from the rise of the female investor."
We are proud to be in touch with entrepreneurs and investors of all ages, backgrounds and sexes. Our ambition is to build towards diversity in the Norwegian startup & investment scene!
