StartUpNV, Nevada’s only state-wide incubator for business startups, has been awarded a three-year grant by the U.S. Economic Development Administration to establish the Southern Nevada Angel Conference Seed Fund, an annual event attracting investors to Nevada-based businesses seeking growth capital. The grant also supports workshops to train entrepreneurs in the skills essential to start, grow and capitalize their businesses. The grant places particular emphasis on nurturing women and Hispanic owned Nevada businesses.
“Nevada is the land of opportunity for businesses to grow and thrive. This is due in no small measure to the spirit of the Nevada business community demonstrated by efforts like StartUpNV’s to establish the Southern Nevada Angel Seed Fund conference and FundNV, their newly-formed affiliated venture fund, to support Nevada entrepreneurs. I look forward to working with the Governor’s Office of Economic Development on further innovations to bring more economic opportunity to our state,” said Nevada Governor Steve Sisolak.
