"The Get Ready for Funding programme is unlike any incubator I have experienced. It is a highly immersive, interactive experience for founders and helps them grasp the workings of the funding world through candid conversations with investors, founders, legal experts and others. It is the perfect programme for first time founders who have launched a service / product and are now looking to scale. Unlike a lot of other programmes, it stays away from just theory, in fact, it focuses on real business issues such as knowing when to raise money, how to do it well and the financial / legal frameworks to scale a company sustainably. Not to mention the individualised focus and attention given to each participant by Nicole and team which makes it a truly valuable experience. Highly recommended!"
