Get your impact venture ready for funding, growth and global impact

Your business is growing and you notice that more and more is being asked of you as a manager or CEO. It is time to take your team to a higher level; your agreements with suppliers and buyers need to be tightened; you need working capital, and there are a thousand more things you have to figure out. In this program, you’ll free yourself from the daily hustle and bustle. You will be working on your strategy and on all the skills you need to enter the next phase. You will work more efficiently and overcome your blind spots, to ensure your company is ready for growth. You won’t be doing this alone, but in a group of like-minded entrepreneurs.

We’re very happy to have been part of the 2017 edition of Impact Hub’s Investment Ready program, which is the best push when you’re in the scaleup phase. Thanks to our pitch at the program’s Demo Day, we secured meetings with 3 investors and are well on our way to raise our target of 500,000 euro. We also connected to entrepreneurs we could learn from, be inspired by and collaborate with as each other’s customers. For instance, we’re helping fellow Investment Ready participants Kitchen Republic separate organic waste at their food startup incubator.
