Business Angels Norway understands the level of trust you put in us in forwarding your business ideas. We are personally committed to handle your information with the utmost care.

In case you become a finalist, you will get asked to pitch your idea to a larger audience. If you have sensible information in your presentation you don’t want to share in a pitch - there are ways. Have someone with industry expertise endorse you / share testimonials / make small changes that are not critical for the reception of the project; in short, be creative!

Lastly, Angel Investors do not profit from stealing the ideas itself - they profit from supporting passionate people that are committed to that one idea.
