Workshop: Investment Clinic

18 January 2018 | Virtual Workshop


Are you Investor-Ready?

  • Can you clearly articulate what your business model is?
  • What do your financial projections say about your expected viability?
  • How do you assess and track your social and environmental impact?
  • How much money are you raising? What type of capital? What will it be used for?
  • What do you know about investors you are targeting? How will you prepare your approach?
  • Impact investors are looking for ventures that know how to answer these questions, and more.

This online workshop is for the international finalists of Accelerate2030, initiated by Impact Hub Geneva and the UNDP. At first, as a group, we will address general questions related to fundraising. Then, during the 1-1 Clinic, each finalist will access dedicated Q&A sessions with the Ground_Up investment clinic experts.
