Impact entrepreneurs play an important role in creating a circulair economy. But impact doesn’t happen in isolation. With the Investment Ready Program we offer a unique 5- month accelerator for impact entrepreneurs, strengthening the strategy and raise the necessary funding.
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.
In addition to experienced mentors, associates and experts, participants also receive in-depth and constructive feedback from each other. Participants rank one another and ultimately select the peer with the most investment-ready business plan.
This model has been developed and tested in more than 50 programs worldwide.
