”In the current investment round for our company, the issue of valuation has been raised a number of times. Having completed an IRP, and with the support of the documentation it produced, it is much easier to explain, in a credible manner, how we have arrived at our valuation.”
The Investment Readiness Process is the most widely spread standardised, preparation process for raising external venture capital in the Nordics. More than 200 startups and scaleups from Sweden, Finland, Norway and Iceland have been IRP Certified and the IRP is used and approved by almost all incubators and accelerators in the Nordics. The IRP is a copyright-protected method that has been developed by Beels Consulting AB based on theories and practice in combination with systematised and in-depth reflection regarding external funding processes and exit negotiations. The aim is to provide knowledge and methodology to founders intending to finance their company’s development through equity, loans or grants from external, financial investors.
