Where new investment journeys begins

Angel Challenge begins when 20 startups are invited to pitch the investor panel for a chance to be selected amongst the 5 finalists. The finalists will get valuable support on building a successful company, feedback on their investor slide deck, and a chance to compete for the final investment.

“It’s about learning angel investing by doing it, both from an investor and startup point of view.”

The 20 investors, both experienced and new to angel investing, set aside 50 000 NOK each upon entering the Challenge. During the program they work together in groups, selecting and helping the 5 finalist startups become a winning investment case, before voting for a single winner at the Angel Challenge Finale day.
