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.
