Our three-month Investment Readiness Sprint will provide you with:

  • A programme of two-week sprints to help you achieve each of the fundraising steps more easily and quickly
  • A group of like-minded entrepreneurs to inspire, support and encourage you in taking action
  • The opportunity to ask Silicon Valley Angel Investors and VC’s your fundraising questions
  • A weekly peer-mentoring/accountabilty group to help you build/measure/learn
What gets an investor’s attention above everything else is traction. If you walk into an investor’s office with the beginnings of a hockey-stick curve, you’ll trigger a Pavlovian response — they’ll sit you down and try to understand the rest of your business model story. Ash Maura

The Investment Readiness Sprint programme:

In the Bootcamp session we will:

  • Identify your Prime Metric,
  • Help you to establish a Minimum Revenue Product
  • Kickstart your Hockey Stick growth via our Traction App
  • Arrange weekly 1.5 hour Scrum sessions (Group video call – day/time decided to suit participants)


Our radical process

Bespoke Action Plans: Each participant works out where they are in regards the three most important investment readiness areas and creates two-week sprints – action plans to improve each area.

Prime Metric ‘Traction App’: Use our tool to focus on and achieve traction each week to get paying customers

Exclusive ‘Ask Me Anything’ Sessions: With Silicon Valley Investors & Entrepreneurs.

Entrepreneur Showcase to Investors: Demonstrate to Investors the progress you made in eight weeks rather than hinging everything on your charismatic story telling abilities.
