Due to regulations around face to face events and training, we have adapted the Investor Readiness Programme for the Autumn 2020 programme.

The programme will be delivered as online workshops, consisting of specialist learning subjects and dedicated mentoring and coaching time split over a four-week period. There are over 12 hours of learning and coaching available for each business as part of the programme, delivered over a four week period. 

The table below indicates the structure of your learning and commitment to the programme over the four weeks:

 

  Week 1: An introduction to equity investment Week 2: The fundamentals of a strong business Week 3: Deck refinement and presentation skills Week 4: Final feedback

As our previous programmes have had high demand, we are running this programme in three cohorts, each with a different start date. This will enable the programme to be delivered with smaller, more intimate sessions, which, particularly with deck feedback and presentation training, allow the participants personal constructive feedback instead of general tips.

On application, you will be asked to join one of the three cohorts detailed below, and whether you prefer to join sessions in the morning (usually 10-11am) or the afternoon (usually 1-2pm).
 

Each cohort takes place across the following weeks:
 

Week commencing Cohort 1 Cohort 2 Cohort 3
7 September Week 1: An introduction to equity Investment    
14 September Week 2: The fundamentals of a strong business    
21 September Week 3: Deck refinement and presentation skills Week 1: An introduction to equity Investment  
28 September Week 4: Final feedback Week 2: The fundamentals of a strong business Week 1: An introduction to equity Investment
5 October   Week 3: Deck refinement and presentation skills Week 2: The fundamentals of a strong business
12 October   Week 4: Final feedback Week 3: Deck refinement and presentation skills
19 October     Week 4: Final feedback

 

Participants who undergo the training programme will have the opportunity to participate in a demo day to investors. The timeline of dates for this are as follows:

Deadline for applications: (Midnight) Monday 26 October
