From Visible to Investable

Have you just graduated IMPACT and striving for more? ANGEL is the roadmap to investment readiness. This invitation-only programme bridges the gap between the two sides of the most powerful equation: Investors and Entrepreneurs.

The persistent. The life-long learner. The ambitious.

These are the attributes we are looking for. Through roundtable size sessions, you can expect to scale fast, increase your company’s valuation, refine all aspects of the product and receive smart capital money from investors aligned to your vision.

To participate in the programme, you need to successfully graduate from IMPACT and get invited directly by our team. In the meantime, you can attend one of our workshops, acquire a new skill and get to meet us in person.

The ANGEL methodology is an acronym and covers the following tenets:

A – Acquire the right Mindset. This is the one facet that you have quite likely not learned about in school.  It is most important since at any early stage of development of a company, the investors will be investing in the entrepreneur as much as in the idea. Hence, depending where you come from, having the right mindset makes a big difference in whether you will be able to secure funding or not. The acquisition of the right mindset underpins my whole methodology.

N – Navigating business basics builds on having acquired the right mindset, which on its own would be insufficient from an investor perspective. In this phase of the methodology, we will be discussing why cash flow is the first and most important indication to gain funding, how to pay close attention to the proper ratios that make you highly investible.

G – Generate branding is an increasingly important component as the eyes of the world as we are on 24/7 and 100% of the time. It’s vital to establish a personal brand that is supportive or consistent with your product brand. Every single action taken in today’s social media world will be kept as a record of ourselves forever and so we need to ensure that every interaction we have is meaningful and is aligned with our values and with the vision you have for your company. Remember, it’s not just your customers looking at you when you are not around, but your investors as well.

E – Execute marketing underpins the importance of knowing how (and why) you need to market and sell your product, otherwise your product is of no value. By having a minimum viable product to present to your potential investors shows traction and commitment.  Showing that selling is your priority to ensure cash flow is a small insurance against the odds that all startups face.

L – Line up funding is the end goal of the methodology; it follows a process by which the entrepreneur has built up a mountain of value that your investor will be able to look at with confidence and be enthusiastic enough to fund. This is where we discuss the importance of using drawing up an inspired business plan and a dynamic business model.  Let the investors see where you want to go and why, and they will follow.

Once successful, companies will have the opportunity to arrange meetings with investors.

At this stage we help startups organise a roadshow. There is also availability of a Virtual Board at a discounted price.
