What is Get Funding Fit?

A mixture of talks, workshops, mentoring and a lot of rolling up your sleeves and working on your business.

Get Funding Fit will help you understand what makes an investable business and whether investment is the right journey for you and your company.

What are investors looking for? How do they make decisions? What makes a company investable? How do I present my business to investors? And what does taking investment mean for me and my company?

Delivery & Format

The Get Funding Fit programme is delivered in person to help founders connect with one another and be a part of an entrepreneurial community. We’re running Cohort 2 over 2 days and it’s vital that you are able to attend both days. A few weeks later, we’ll run peer feedback sessions for pitches, and a few weeks after that you’ll have the option to pitch to angels and VCs at our in-person investor lounge.
