What is the AngelNV Conference

–  Angels say, “there aren’t any investable deals”.
–  Entrepreneurs say, “there aren’t any investors writing checks”.

AngelNV improves both of these issues through two 12 week long educational and event series – one series for founders and the other for angel investors.  Some events in both series overlap – and both educational series conclude in a joint, one-day conference where at least 1 company is funded with $400,000 including $200,000 from investors participating in the angel series and a 1:1 match by the SSBCI program invested by the Battle Born Growth Ventures. 

AngelNV is open to the public for any member of the community interested in learning more about starting a company or investing in a new business. Community members looking to invest must be considered an accredited investor.

AngelNV aims to build the Southern Nevada startup ecosystem by engaging seasoned and novice angel investors to build angel investing skills while providing access to deals from different industries and stages. A series of learn by doing events for investors build up to a one-day conference, and a 6-figure check for the winning entrepreneur.
