Investor Readiness program

Based on demand, Novel-T organizes programs for motivated entrepreneurs. This program is the perfect preparation for your search for an investor. In four days over the course of circa one month, you will receive plenary and individual coaching, as well as training in various subjects related to investor readiness.

The program explained in 2 minutes

On the first day, the focus is mainly on theoretical aspects and introduction models. The following elements will be covered (some in general terms) during presentations:

  • The funding lifecycle of startups;
  • Investor readiness: what do investors look out for?;
  • Different types of (venture capital) investors and their characteristics;
  • The process from starting your search to closing the deal;
  • Valuation of business case / startup;
  • Pitch deck and business plan;
  • Financing strategy, tips & tricks.

Furthermore, the following models will be introduced: Golden Egg Check, Startup Funding Canvas and Investor Readiness Canvas. You will also begin working with the pitch deck.

On the second and third days, the startups will receive individual coaching based on the pitch deck and the canvases they filled out. On these days, there will be a lunch workshop during which one of the following topics will be covered (in consultation with the participants): valuation of a business case or startup, investor readiness and/or an inspirational story from a successful entrepreneur. The content of day four will be based by Novel-T on the needs of the startups.

Practical concerns
The program is organized by Novel-T and is held around the campus of the University of Twente. The trainers of Golden Egg Check have years of experience with startups, investors and the process of bringing the two together. Participation in this program is free to interested entrepreneurs, although we expect full commitment and active participation from everyone. Prior to the program, the participants will be selected based on the number of applications received. Each program offers room for up to six (teams of) entrepreneurs.
