Next in New Nordic Leads: learn how to spot the right startups

1 October, 2020

Two important skills that every lead angel needs: screening skills and conflict resolution skills. In October, you’ve got the opportunity to develop both of these by joining New Nordic Leads training online. In addition to two insightful training sessions, we offer a unique possibility to expand your cross-border networks.

New Nordic Leads is a lead angel training and investment program put together by FiBAN and EstBAN fueled by Central Baltic Interreg. Together we aim to educate the next generation of lead angels, improve the investment readiness of startups, and inspire cross-border investments. The program was kicked off in a hybrid event in August together with over 40 event participants, and the next parts are right around the corner:

15th October: Screening day

Screening – one of the most important steps of a successful syndication process. What are the questions to ask from the founders? The red flags to look out for? Something that can help you to avoid wasting time in conducting due diligence that wouldn’t lead to an investment. In this screening session, you will have the opportunity to learn what experienced angel investors look out for in a perfect pitch deck:

Tuomas Pahlman, the lead angel of our previous angel training and investment program called NAP, has put together a group of experienced angel investors. These action-oriented lead angels are joining the forces to screen the deal flow of Arctic15 on the 15th of October. As a program participant of New Nordic Leads, you’re also welcome to join the screening session! A great opportunity to learn more about how to spot the most promising startups.

You will find register link and agenda HERE.

FiBAN & nine experienced and international lead angels have joined forces to screen the Arctic15 deal flow! These experienced lead angels come from various backgrounds and are focused on different sectors such as food tech, B2B SaaS, fintech – just to mention a few.
