Investibility 3hr Masterclass Have you wondered the difference between startups that secure millions of dollars in investment and those that don't? It all comes down to their Investibility which centres around core pillars that, if you can identify and improve will radically increase your chance of an investment. The Investibility Masterclass is a jam packed session designed to educate you on these core pillars and provide you insight on how investors evaluate high potential founders. At the conclusion of this Masterclass you will walk away with the tools to assess your own Investibility.

We're scaling at the moment, and this workshop helped me strategise at a higher level by looking at the business in the long-term and ensuring that it's viable and scalable. I would recommend it to startups who have a prototype and are already on the market so they can develop a plan and establish the processes necessary in order to scale and present their business to investors. It's an especially valuable workshop if they're accountable to other stakeholders (clients, investors, etc.) as it helps you work out the income streams in a clear fashion."
