[startapp_block_title tag_subtitle=”h5″ animation=”” title=”The Founder / Investor Relationship”]

Investment rounds needn’t be long and arduous. In fact, the quicker you get back to work the better it is for everyone. To set your expectations from the very beginning, we strive to be prompt in our response, and be as helpful as is possible to get you where you need to be. Below is a breakdown of our process

You have identified a problem and are working on the solution. We want you to nail this part, and woo your first customers. Which is why we offer office space in central Oslo, mentoring, good coffee and high speed internet for 12 months for free. We can also invest up to NOK 500k at this stage.

You’ve developed a product, and are bringing it to market. At this stage we expect to see some early signs of traction (ideally revenue), a solid team, and a product roadmap. At this stage we are able to invest between NOK 500k and NOK 2m. We can lead rounds, but we expect you to build them.
