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.
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:
