What you get
The programme costs £3,000 (plus VAT) payable in instalments which includes you everything you need to raise equity investment (expect your legal documents – but we can introduce you to our partners who provide support with this).
Our weekly interactive Zoom workshops focus you on preparing everything you need to raise investment, whilst our weekly assignments encourage you to take a step-by-step approach to preparing the documents an investor will expect to see. We’ll keep you accountable for making progress, provide you with a wide selection of tools, templates and playbooks that make the journey to investment as seamless as possible (including pitch documents, valuation reports, and a forecasting template worth over £1,000). You’ll also receive weekly feedback from our specialist mentors who provide support in improving and shaping your investment documents. We aim to have you pitching like a pro and feeling confident talking to investors.
From your elevator pitch and executive summary to your forecast and valuation, you’ll have all of the documents you need to put in front of investors.
You’ll make connections with mentors who will support you on your journey and get the chance to have one-to-one conversations on important fundamentals like how to build financial forecasts and how to develop a strong team.
You’ll be fully supported by our friendly community during weekly workshops. You’ll also have regular check-ins, peer reviews, assignments and playbooks to help you stay on track.
You’ll build a target investor profile (TIP) and create a tailored list of investors who already back businesses like yours. And you’ll get access to our proven process on how to reach out to them and build strong relationships, with exclusive email templates, data room and due diligence pack.
During the programme you’ll have the opportunity to pitch your business to our community of investors, mentors and business owners so you can get valuable feedback to hone your offer.
