Angel Investor

February 10, 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 I have moved in with a team at brand new "Kasbah Hub" in Oslo and new spaces are popping up everywhere around town. Feel good to part of the movement. 

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
