Building Nevada's Startup Ecosystem
We have 7 growth programs for founders and 4 funds for investors to support startups.
By Founders, For Founders. StartUpNV was founded by successful entrepreneurs who know the impact that a supportive startup ecosystem makes in a startup’s success. Our organization is built on ensuring Nevada’s founders have access to the best resources, support, and capital (with founder-friendly deal terms) right here at home. In doing so, we help diversify Nevada’s economy, create jobs, build community, and keep and attract the best innovators to build their StartUp(in)NV.
Home Always means Nevada, even when you’re raising capital.

Become A Nevada Startup Investor
Ready to invest while making a difference?
StartUpNV is a non-profit organization, but the venture funds we facilitate are very much for-profit. We’re committed to attracting and raising venture capital in Nevada, educating and reducing barriers to becoming an investor, and making informed investments in the next big disruptors.
The right investors and mentors can make all the difference in a startup’s success, and being an early investor in the right companies can provide the greatest returns. Part of StartUpNV’s mission is to educate individuals on what it takes to be a good angel investor and how to make smart, successful investments.
Our investment committees consist of exited founders, long-time angel investors and seasoned venture capitalists, and our unique model allows our venture team to spend months to years getting to know founders and their businesses before investing. We have multiple venture funds that cater to different types of investors and their goals.
