The Investible Games

Think Investible Bootcamp, eGames, The Hunger Games and Tough Mudder – where 12 startups will be undertaking 15 Challenges over 3 days.
Startups across key sectors will be assessed on 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.
