Valhalla Angel Investor Forums
What is a Valhalla Angel Investor Forum?
If you’re a founder in the startup space and looking to raise capital, then landing a spot at the Valhalla Angel’s Forum is the ideal place for you. The forum provides entrepreneurs with the opportunity to pitch their business ideas to accredited angel investors. Forums are currently virtual and take place the second Tuesday of each month.
To participate in the Valhalla Angels forum a company must be approved by our Deal Screening Committee. To participate in deal screening, founders must submit an application, provided below, and then submit a Pitchdeck or PowerPoint presentation, financials overview, and a factsheet to the deal screening committee. If the initial screening (at the time of application) is positive, you will proceed to the formal deal screening where you will be evaluated further by a group of Valhalla Angels members (Deal Screening Committee) who volunteer their time to assist in the process. The committee will provide feedback to each company and if the committee feels you are ready you will proceed to the forum.
At the Forum each founder will have an opportunity to give a 10-minute pitch to the accredited Valhalla Angels Members. This is followed by an 8-minute question and answer period. For this pitch company factsheet, executive summary, financials and final presentation must be submitted a week beforehand.
After presenting, the founders will be asked to leave the room while the members have an open discussion regarding the positives and constructives of each proposal. Within 72 hours, the entrepreneurs will receive Gold Sheet results, which identifies if or how the members would like to assist in developing the business. Feedback from the candid members’ discussion and the Valhalla Angels team will also be provided. This will give the presenting companies the opportunity to follow-up on all of the leads that have been generated from the forum.
