1 Angel for Norway

“Maybe the biggest challenge isn’t raising money, but finding smart money” – Christina Bechhold

At HighTechNorway, this seasoned angel investor and regular Wall Street Journal contributor will put all her smarts to work:

In Christina’s mind, a startup is only fundable if it is both scalable, returnable and acquirable: http://blogs.wsj.com/accelerators/2015/02/23/christina-bechhold-is-your-idea-investable/
