Business Angels Norway

We are the only member-based interest organisation for Business Angels in the country, with a dozen regional or other angel groups and 800+ angels.

BAN is the only trade association representing business angels in Norway. BAN is a member of EBAN - the European angel association.

Who? As any interest organisation we only further the interests of our members. Not consultants. Not VCs. Not mentors.

Our 3 goals: We represent our members towards government/politics/media/etc. We train angels. We improve deal flow for our members - and we collaborate with others towards these goals.

Our vision: To build a thriving network of thousands of angel investors - that help startups succeed while doing >10X exits.

Our mission: Helping angels invest outside their local area - We welcome startups and angel investors from all around the world - and we play a key role in building angel networks in Latin America, Asia and Africa. And on the way BAN was the initiator and founder of the first Nordic BAN.

Events: We facilitate events and programs where angel investors and startups meet, we have events in all regions of Norway together with regional angel groups - though not always at regular intervals.

Lobby: We make it more attractive to invest in startups - we were one of three organisations that successfully lobbied for establishing a tax incentive for angel investments.

Training: We have trained over 500 angels in Norway, we train banks and other ecosystem players. All interest organisations are non-commercial, but we also support commercial training actors and any other initiatives that further the angel ecosystem in Norway.
