One of the biggest challenges facing entrepreneurs is money. Accessing growth capital, securing investments, and generating revenue are issues that plague startup and growth-stage businesses alike.

The OKGN Angel Summit is a 10-week program designed to expose both entrepreneurs and accredited investors to the world of angel investing. This is done through a guided, hands-on process where a small venture capital fund is raised, deals are screened, and an investment in a startup is made. Participating companies will learn the capital raising process and build investor relationships with 30 active investors. To maintain COVID-19 health and safety standards, the 2021 OKGN Angel Summit will be hosted virtually.

This program culminates in a virtual event on Thursday, March 18, 2021, where 6 finalists make their pitch to an audience of community members, and the winner is awarded an investment of at least $100K from the fund. That’s right, $100K.
