The Growth Challenge timeline
The Growth Challenge is an integrated part of the Angel Challenge programs running in Norway from 2018.
All 20 startups are invited to take part in the full 2 month program.
WEEK 1-6: INSIGHT AND DEVELOPMENT
Let’s get to know each-other and learn together:
All investors and startups spend 6 weeks together, learning about startup investing and company growth through weekly training sessions. With teamwork, homework, lectures, and presentations the investors and startups learn together and build trusted relationships.
WEEK 6-8: NEGOTIATIONS AND GROWTH CHALLENGES
Negotiate a deal, or grow your business:
After the first 6 weeks, the 3-5 most investor-ready startups are invited to join in investment negotiations. The others receive individual growth challenges from the investors, structured training workshops with mentors and facilitators, and have the opportunity to impress again at the local demo day.
WEEK 8 -12: FUNDRAISING
Always be fundraising:
Some say there is a recipe to building a growth company, and that it involves investors at some point in time. For some, that time is today, for others, it is later. The challenge is on you to grow your startup and fundraise when ready!
