Programmes: Investment Bootcamp

Helping you secure your first raise, from plan to pitch

The Investment Bootcamp is a series of facilitated sessions designed to help start-up founders prepare to raise funds. Working as part of a small cohort of likeminded business owners across a full day of coaching, you’ll be shown how to develop an investment-ready business plan and pitch.

Alongside training to help you refine a compelling story and presentation and one-to-one direct feedback on your pitch, Q&A sessions with the investment community will share tips about what investors are really looking for, as well as advice on how to use the same tools to pursue alternative means of finance.

At the end of the programme, start-ups meeting our selection criteria will be referred to our community of angel investors.

When lockdown hit, a lot of VCs were saying they’re just backing their existing portfolios, but people were very receptive to our idea. It was great having the Suss Ventures team to guide us through the journey and we developed a good amount of trust, which is very important to us.
