Finding it hard to get investment for your startup?

Would you like to increase your chances of raising investment the first time you try by learning from VC and Angel investors?

Would you like a guaranteed opportunity to pitch to a group of investors in September and maybe get an investment deal by the Christmas holidays?

Then go for it because more Investors are looking for Angel and Seed investment deals in Scotland than ever!

But 99% of startups are rejected by Investors because of a few common mistakes.

  1. They target the wrong investors
  2. They don’t know how to raise investment
  3. The standard of competition is higher
  4. They lack meaningful traction
  5. They are fixated on building their solution

Want to increase your chances of raising investment?

The Investment Readiness Sprint is a simple yet effective process that increases your chances of raising investment by:

  1. Enabling you to identify the Prime Metric for your startup.
  2. Supporting you in establishing meaningful traction.
  3. Helping you to identify appropriate investors.
  4. Helping you invest in the right investor relationships.
  5. Ensuring investors attention by showing your progression.

For only £150 this 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.

July – September Investment Readiness Sprint programme:

In your personal Bootcamp session we will:

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

Exclusive ‘Ask Me Anything’ Sessions: With Silicon Valley Investors & Entrepreneurs such as Vish Mishra of Clearstone.

Entrepreneur Showcase to Investors: Demonstrate your progress made in eight weeks to Investors rather than pitching

Our radical process

Bespoke: Each participant works out where they are in regards to three important areas no matter how far along the Startup Journey (Minimum Revenue Product, Paying Customers, Investor Relations & Due Diligence) and creates two-week sprints (or plans to achieve milestones for each)

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

Progress Reports: Rather than a one-off pitch fest, Investors can be impressed by the progress participants make over eight weeks and be reassure that the team can execute or ‘Get Stuff Done’!
