There are so many different ways to raise investment for startups and small business. Investors have increased visibility and choice when it comes to investing too. As a start-up founder or entrepreneur it is vital that you know how to position your business as “ready for investment” and that you have the tools and documentation to support your funding campaign, be that raising angel investment or crowdfunding.

Preparing for investment is a cyclical process which needs to consider
future expectations as well as the current need.

Fast Track to Funding is designed to speed up the process of preparing for investment and attracting investors. Through a combination of one-to-one coaching, specialist masterclasses and documentation review and feedback you will:

  • Discover the seven essentials of a successful pitch
  • Develop compelling assets that have investors lining up to meet you
  • Implement a systematic process for attracting and securing the right investors
  • Gain the language to hold your own with investors and close the deal
  • Grow in confidence not just in pitching your business, but as a credible, investable founder.

Fast Track to Funding is not suitable for all founders and business owners. You need to be ready for investment, be committed to take the steps to prepare for investment and be up for the roller-coaster journey that is “raising investment”.

Fast Track to Funding is a bespoke programme based around a menu of options. No point in paying for what you already have if it fits the bill! The programme starts with a Fast Track to Funding Assessment Meeting. This is a 60 minute video call before which you will be asked to complete and supply some background information on your business. (The meeting can not go ahead without this information). During the Assessment Meeting you will learn:

  • How suitable your business is for investment – and what practical steps you can take to make your business more appealing to investors.
  • Understand the different funding routes open to you and receive an initial assessment on the route(s) most likely to lead to success.
  • Explore the documentation you will need to support the funding process and receive practical feedback on how to develop and improve that documentation.
  • Receive an action plan on the steps you need to take to successfully attract investment.

A Fast track to Funding Assessment Meeting costs £95 and is led by Hatty Fawcett
