Operated by StartUpNV, Nevada’s statewide incubator and accelerator for Nevada-based startup companies, AngelNV has opened enrollment for its free entrepreneurial fundraising bootcamp. It starts Sept. 8 and will teach startup founders how to raise venture capital, culminating with at least one company receiving a $200k investment. Business owners interested in the bootcamp and investment must sign up online by Aug. 25 at https://startupnv.org/accelerator-application/.
Modeled after the highly successful San Diego Angel Conference, AngelNV will teach startups the fundamentals of attracting venture capital, including perfecting their pitch, creating an effective “get-to-market” strategy, conducting market research, developing a deck to attract investors, and understanding the venture capital process.
The free AngelNV bootcamp runs September through December and will be held every other week at the International Innovation Center @Vegas downtown with the option to participate in-person or virtually.
Bootcamp participants can apply for AngelNV funding (a one-time $149 application fee is required). Accredited angels who have invested in the AngelNV Conference Fund will award an AngelNV startup with a $200,000 investment to be announced at a special Shark Tank-style event in March 2021.
An introductory information session about AngelNV will be held Tuesday, July 21, with special guest Greg Gibson, CEO and co-founder of Meta Mechanics, who will present “The Art of Storytelling” as a way to inform and inspire investors and customers about a company. The session will be held in person for 10 attendees and via Zoom. For more details and to register visit: https://www.tickettailor.com/events/startupnv/389693
AngelNV is a program of StartUpNV that provides expert mentorship to startups and access to a network of capital partners. In just over two years, of more than 400 Nevada-based companies that pitched to be part of the StartUpNV incubator program, nearly 50 were accepted and have raised more than $36 million in capital. However, 99.2 percent of the capital raised came from outside of Nevada. As a result, StartUpNV created AngelNV to foster an angel investment network for Nevada-based startups and attract to the state scalable startup businesses and entrepreneurs with big ideas to build a more diversified and resilient economy.
Starting in January, AngelNV will offer workshops for accredited investors on angel investing strategies and tactics. Designed for both first-time and experienced investors, AngelNV investors need not be “super wealthy” and can be at the beginning of their investment journey, such as successful professionals or retirees.
