About AngelNV

The AngelNV mission is to grow the startup ecosystem in Nevada by teaching accredited investors how to invest in startups, while also showing entrepreneurs what it takes to attract angel investing… that’s its about so much more than “an idea”. It’s about execution.

Join us at our 2021 finale. Have a great Saturday afternoon and if you like it, get involved with our mission and contribute to diversifying our economy. While you’re at it, you’ll make some new friends and good money!

Entrepreneur Track

Get Ready! AngelNV starts in the fall when entrepreneurs will gather for a months-long workshop series to prepare for the angel conference. They practice their pitches and learn the essentials of seeking angel and early stage investment.

Angel / Investor Track

After the application deadline in mid-winter, the angel investor group participating in the conference fund attends 2 half-day workshops to learn the basics (or brush up), then the group starts to review companies. Week after week they narrow the field, hear pitches, and engage in debate. For many investors this is their first exposure to the angel investing process.

Save the Date: Saturday, May 8, 2021, 1pm – Main Conference Event

Join us to watch the finalists give their final pitch… after months of preparation, review, and completing due diligence. One company will walk away with an investment of $200,000 as voted upon by the angel investors at the event.  Before and after the pitches, hear interviews with the finalist founders and other innovators who are pushing the Nevada startup ecosystem forward.

Featured Startups & Speakers

AngelNV is primarily about hearing the finalists pitches and learning which companies secure an investment. Attendees also have a chance to hear from leaders in the Nevada startup ecosystem – and learn from their stories.
