”I think the biggest AHA moment in the Investment Readiness Process was when we got it explained in a thorough way what it means and why it is so important to keep shares with the founders and how it can be done in a good way.
FineCell AB is a Swedish deep tech startup that did their Investment Readiness Process by Beels® as part of the incubation program by LEAD.”
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.
