What is The Investible Games?
The Investible Games is a unique, elimination-style event that challenges early-stage founders toward their first seed raise.
This is not a pitch competition or hackathon. It's an intensive, two-day challenge designed specifically for up-and-coming founders who want to put their business in the best possible position to raise capital.
If you're willing to learn what it truly takes to be investible and understand the value of connecting with investors early on in your capital raising process, the Investible Games is for you.
Who should apply?
We’re looking for startups that meet the following criteria:
Raised Less Than $500,000 in Institutional Investment
Evidence of Validation and/or Traction
Founder(s) Can Participate in Person
More than 70 early-stage startups have taken part in Investible Games events across Australia and South East Asia, representing a wide variety of industries and sectors. Here’s what founders have to say about the experience:
The Investible Games is designed for founders of early-stage companies that are progressing toward their first seed raise. Ideally, companies will have raised less than $500,000 in funding. Startups working in all major sectors and industries are encouraged to apply.
The application is a simple, secure online form used to assess startups suitability for the Investible Games. Most founders should be able to complete the form in a matter of minutes!
Applicants should expect to provide your contact details and basic information about your sector and previous funding. We also require applications to upload their most recent pitch deck or company overview.
There is no cost to apply for or participate in the Investible Games. Investible does not take equity as a condition of participation and there is no extended commitment required.
Founders are responsible for their travel, food and accommodation costs if they are travelling to participate. Light snacks will be provided during the event with regular breaks and time allocated for lunch.
As an early-stage investor, we believe in building long-term relationships with high-potential founders. We want to get to know your business before you’re ready to raise capital and long after we invest.
The Investible Games is a great way to establish relationships between founders and investors, resulting in stronger startups and investment opportunities.
The Investible Games is an elimination-style, challenge-based event. Not every startup will make it all the way through to the final challenge but all participants will have access to Investible’s proven founder development IP, interact with investors and gain valuable insights that will help them on their capital raising journey.
The Investible Games is designed to promote genuine connections between founders and investors and local and international investors are on hand throughout the event.
Investors will participate as challenge judges, enabling them to provide personalised feedback on different areas of your business. Startups that successfully make it through to the final round will have the opportunity for one-on-one time with investors.
