For nine evening workshops, 20 angel investors work together on investor analysis of a handful of promising startups. The startups are competing for their attention and investment.
The participating 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 startups become investor ready, before selecting 3-5 startups that they negotiate deals with and help fundraise.
