Join the Investment Readiness Day for just $550

The Investment Readiness Day is designed to help you learn how to ‘show up’ for investment conversations and get you enroute to developing investor relationships and on your path to growth.  

How do you tell the story of your company in just 5 minutes?

Your goal is to get noticed, to get a chance to continue the conversation. In a sea of pitches, you must be memorable. The Investment Readiness Day will help you do just that.

Through the Investment Readiness Day, you will not only turn your conference and Trade Mission investment into a profit centre, you will get yourself ready to show up with confidence, and effectively approach that ‘make or break’ process of sharing the right story and pitch for the investors you meet.

Why is this important? Because in fundraising, your pitch is key!

It’s through sharing the right story and pitch with your investors that the fundraising process becomes a conversation.

The Investment Readiness Day takes the guesswork out of  investment readiness showing you how to do this in just 1 day!
