Preparing Nevada Start-ups for Early Stage Capital

Startup Incubator & Startup Investment Opportunities

As Nevada’s Only State-Wide Business Incubator, we enable startups to take scalable business ideas from beta / MVP into revenue-producing businesses, then prepare them to connect with early stage investors.

Get Help Funding Your Startup

You have an amazing idea, and you’ve researched it and are positive there’s a market out there that’s waiting for this product or service. The only trouble is that you have no funding to get from Point A to Point B. You may not even know how to begin looking for investment sources.

That’s okay because our incubator accelerator program gives you the tools you need to position yourself in front of early stage investors. As you progress, we will even connect you with our network of angel investors and other capital sources.

Become an Angel Investor

An idea paired with the right investor and mentor can become the next big industry disruptor. You’ve heard the stories, but you’ve never had the chance to do it yourself. You can change that by learning what it takes to successfully invest in business startups.

Angel investing is riskier than other types of investments, but done properly, the rewards of making a great return while impacting our community makes it worthwhile. StartUpNV’s mission is to educate individuals on what it takes to be a good angel investor and make smart, successful investments. We’re establishing the angel investing ecosystem in Nevada, and you can be part of this bigger movement.

Be the good in the world.
