About this event

Investment Readiness Workshop Part 2


Is your pitch deck designed to grab investors’ attention and answer their questions? Successful pitch decks are only studied for an average 3 minutes and 44 seconds. That’s why it’s critical to get your pitch worded just right. In this interactive workshop, we will focus on immediate improvements that you can make to your pitch deck. You’ll go away with all the tools to create a pitch that resonates with future investors.

Key topics

  • Bringing the problem to life
  • Making the technical accessible
  • Easy wins for your pitch
  • Essential elements every pitch needs


  • Identifying a clear USP
  • Understanding of pitch deck essentials
  • Knowing what investors look for in a pitch
  • Confidence to apply this knowledge


  • Two hours

Who is it for?

This programme is for entrepreneurs with innovative ideas looking to raise funding to accelerate their business. It is designed to be useful and inspiring regardless of your level of marketing and pitching knowledge.

What is the point of an investment readiness workshop?

To raise funds, you need a clear message. A start-up that can’t communicate its USP will always struggle. And when you have created a technical marvel, the temptation is to only talk about the tech. Having a great idea is one thing, but how do you identify and explain your business case? We have designed a programme that gives entrepreneurs the tools to make sure their message lands with investors.

Over the course of two workshops, participants will learn the essential marketing fundamentals that they need to reach their goals. The workshops are two hours each. Alongside this, we offer optional one-on-one support for tailored marketing advice, pitch deck reviews, and a pitch deck improvement service.
