Valhalla Investment Summit: 7-week intensive, training program

The Valhalla Investment Summit is a 7-week intensive, training program that provides hands-on experience to founders and investors in a fun, casual setting, while investing $100,000+ into at least one local tech startup.

Valhalla Angels and Volition have a combined experience of 30+ years working with founders and investors. They are here to share their knowledge and bring others into their vision of creating a global movement of growing successful companies outside the big investment hubs.

Program runs from May 20th – June 24th.

How Valhalla Investment Summit Works?

  • They recruit 20+ investors (new and seasoned) to invest a minimum of $5,500 each and pool these funds into a Special Purpose Vehicle (SPV).
  • Investors attend training, screen pitch  decks, meet with founders, complete due diligence, negotiate terms, and work together, meeting once per week, to select one startup for investment.
  • Companies attend training, pitch, gain exposure to the larger startup community, complete due diligence and close deals.
  • The Summit on June 24 brings together investors, companies and a larger audience in a main event to celebrate local startup communities, share knowledge, cheer on the Top 5 finalists, and announce the company to be awarded the investment.

Why You Should Apply

This program is designed to provide you with an experience that goes beyond the fundraising opportunity. Through the Summit you will:

  • Receive world-class training on fundraising that will help you through this process and your future rounds.
