Social entrepreneurs play an important role in creating a sustainable and inclusive economy. But impact doesn’t happen in isolation. With the Investment Ready Program we offer a unique 5- month accelerator for green entrepreneurs, strengthening the strategy and raise the necessary funding

Peer ranking

Next to experienced mentors, associates and experts, participants give and receive in-depth, constructive feedback during the program. Participants rank each other and select the entrepreneur with the most ‘investment ready’ business plan. 

This model has been developed and tested in more than 50 programs worldwide.

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.
