Lean into innovation with us – in Las Vegas

March 25, 2021, 6-9pm / International Innovation Center @ Vegas

AngelNV invests a minimum of $200,000 in one or more promising Nevada based startups, creating critical momentum for our local startup ecosystem.

About AngelNV

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

Join our entrepreneur or angel investor track and get involved, contribute to diversifying our economy – and make some new friends and good money while you’re doing it!

Entrepreneur Track

Get Ready! AngelNV starts on September 8, when entrepreneurs will gather for a months-long workshop series to prepare fo 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 December, 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: March 25, 2021 – Main Conference Event

Join us to watch the six 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.  In between the pitches, hear from innovators who are pushing the Nevada — and Las Vegas startup ecosystem forward.
