Startup Digest

Angel Investor

February 03, 2017

Hi, angels! 

Here you have some of the posts I have been reading this week and hope you find some relevant stories. 

This week Gründerklubben (The Entrepreneurs Club) reached 9,000 members. I started it as an initiative on Facebook two years ago and has now grown into one of the most powerful communities in Norwegian where entrepreneurs learn from each other, share networks, political issues are discussed and deals are made. Fell free to contact me for more information. 

As a curator, I want feedback on what you think should be the focus of this newsletter, and I promise your voice will be heard. Please send me the exciting news, deals, tools and feel free to connect at @vikinangels or LinkedIn

Have a great weekend!
