Investment Readiness Programme: Convince investors your business is the one to back

PitchReady Sprint is a 12-week investment readiness programme. We’ll guide you to develop a compelling business case and craft the three critical fundraising assets you’ll need to convince investors your business is the one to back – a believable business plan, credible financial projections and a persuasive pitch – so you’re in a much better position to secure the vital funds you need to grow.

PitchReady Sprint - investment readiness programme

The best course I’ve ever attended. You are investing in a programme with hands-on support – not a set of videos. The quality of templates and instructions were very high indeed and you walk away at the end of the programme with a high-quality set of assets and the confidence to seek investment.

Week 1 – 2: Understanding the investment landscape

We’ll begin with a deep dive into the current investment landscape and delve into the investors’ mind set. We’ll explore the fundraising journey, your business valuation, the mind of an investor and proof points that get their attention, giving you the very best chance, they’ll back your business. You’ll also receive a copy of the best-selling books, Investable Entrepreneur and 24Assets.

This is all about developing your business strategy and framing your business case for investment. We’ll delve into the fundamentals of an investable business plan and guide you to identify the red flags and gaps that may hinder your progress with investors. By the end of the Sprint, you’ll have an investor ready business plan that details your implementation strategy and documents how you’ll deliver investors a return on investment.

With our support and access to our exclusive projections template, you’ll have everything you need to map out your income and expenditure, cash-flow and balance sheet movements for the next five years – we’ll even guide you to create the metrics needed for investors to make an informed decision.

During this sprint you’ll produce a set of convincing and compelling pitch materials that quickly and clearly explain to investors what makes your idea special, and why they should invest. With our guidance, content frameworks and premium pitch templates, you’ll create content that clearly articulates your value proposition and onboards investors in your vision, while also evidencing your strategy for delivering a return on their investment.

What our clients say

The best course I’ve ever attended. James is meticulous in his delivery – you are investing in a course with hands-on support from James – not a set of videos. The quality of templates and instructions were very high indeed and you walk away at the end of the programme with a high-quality set of assets and the confidence to seek investment.

Hutton Henry, Beyond M&A

Honestly… I am overwhelmed with how perfect the programme really is. You should charge more! I got funded at £443k in exchange for 5% equity – the results speak volumes. James’ detailed and well delivered style really suited my learning

Richard Hooper, Propfinium UK

I can honestly say your course has been one of the best business investments I’ve ever made. Not only have I learned so much, but it has caused me to re-evaluate so many things, making my business stronger.

Karl Gjertsen, Golf Leagues

I had attended several workshops run by James and was impressed by the level of expertise. This programme didn’t disappoint. It’s excellent, and one I would happily recommend to any entrepreneur looking to learn more about the mindset of the investor.

Tricia McNeilly, ötzibrew

I’m very impressed. As we’re bootstrapping, every penny spent is prioritised, but I really feel this has been one of the best things I’ve spent money on for any of my businesses. I’m now able to drive my business forward and the tools provided will be useful in the long term.

Why join our investment readiness programme?

An alarming number of entrepreneurs fail to raise investment, despite more money than ever being invested into startups. The reason for this is simple, entrepreneurs don’t speak the language of investors. 

Entrepreneurs speak about ideas, possibilities and opportunities, whereas investors prefer to speak about risk, implementation and proof. The 1% of entrepreneurs who do succeed at raising investment are the ones who are able to bridge this gap. The one thing that sets this elite group apart from the 99% who fail isn’t their idea, but their ability to speak the language of investors.

Investors hold all the cards – it’s on the founder to make sure they speak to them in their terms, delivering the information they’re looking for in the way they’re looking for it. By attending this investment readiness programme, you position yourself in the top few per cent of founders raising investment and increase your chances by up to 40x.
