Request for Proposals: Investment Readiness Accelerator

EIT Urban Mobility is seeking professional support and training services to prepare European tech-mobility ventures for investment. 

Fast-growing companies need to acquire the necessary capital to scale fast. With few exceptions, entrepreneurs are unable to recruit key employees, implement marketing initiatives, and develop products and services without the right funding strategy in place.

The Investment Readiness Accelerator (IRA) is designed to prepare entrepreneurs to receive funding from early-stage investors and other sources of capital. It targets ambitious entrepreneurs as they contribute to solving pressing social and environmental challenges across Europe.

The IRA has the ultimate goal to improve the Investment Readiness Level (IRL) of the participating companies, moving from a hypothesis or validation stage to the required maturity phase where entrepreneurs can successfully convey:

  1. A common language to clearly communicate objectives and milestones to investors
  2. How innovation can be framed to communicate both business and financial deliverables
  3. Analytical metrics that investors and other financiers can use to inform selection processes

All information, including the detailed scope of work, deliverables, and terms & conditions can be found in the Request for Proposals

Deadline for submissions: 21 February 2022 at 16:00 Central European Time.
