Our proprietary Investment Readiness Programme is at the core of our investment decisions. It is more collaborative, constructive and effective than traditional, critical due diligence and it has been successfully tested and fine-tuned over many years of working with start-ups and growth companies.
The Programme is not an incubator or an accelerator. It is a sophisticated framework that helps take you beyond a boring, dry business plan by helping you to pose the right questions and to test your assumptions.
Through our Programme we empower our founders to fashion a realistic roadmap for their business, first on a strategic (i.e. a high level roadmap) level and then on an operational (i.e. resources needed to implement that strategy) level and help them put in place the right resources to succeed.
It allows us to get to know you, your vision and your business, and for you to get to know us. Above all, the Programme builds trust and confidence and helps align all stakeholders, within your own company and outside your business (us as your investors, your suppliers, partners and customers), around your vision and roadmap, creating clarity and securing commitment from all concerned.
Finally, because things always turn out differently to what we envisaged, the Programme sets up a framework and culture for you to perform an ongoing assessment and improvements as your business grows and circumstances evolve.
