Think Tough Mudder meets startup Accelerator where 12 startups will be undertaking 12 Challenges over 3 Days. Startups will be assessed on their founder team, understanding of the problem, business model, traction and more – in front of investors, business and industry leaders, startup and corporate innovators
It’s all about
becoming more Investible
The best Investors rarely invest off the back of Accelerator Demo Days which means you could have given up months of your time and crucial equity only to be surrounded by mentors that know less about your industry than you do.
The Investible Games is different – we’re revolutionising startup development, investor due diligence and corporate venturing by acknowledging the best startups are time poor. We provide real prizes, real insights and real networks without fees or taking a slice of your equity.
Investible’s Investibility Matrix assesses 16 core factors that if you can identify and improve will dramatically increase your likelihood of landing investment.
Jump into serious fun
The winning participant will receive a 12 month founder support package with Investible worth $18K, and up to $10K in cash over 3 days. Prizes also include investor meetings, partner inclusions, and coaching together with attendance at the popular Investible Bootcamp.
All participants will receive a comprehensive report on the startup activity in their sector. Industry experts from your sector will be on-hand to provide feedback and direction.
Over the three days, you will meet with some of the most dynamic startups, a broad range of corporate innovators, senior executives, tech and design experts together with industry leaders.
