We deliver this program on behalf of Innovation Norway, to support more Norwegian founders with skills and experience on how to attract investors to their company and how to build international growth companies.
The Fundraising for Startups Program is a seven-week program for early stage companies in Norway with the ambition to grow and expand their business. The program is addressed to startups that want to grow through fundraising and will help you become fundraising ready by preparing you to successfully go through investor meetings and the due diligence process.
It is the first stage in the Angel Challenge fundraising cycle. You will develop a structured approach to fundraising for your startup, build an investor ready deal and attract investors.
