The Investable Blueprint

The Investable Blueprint is designed for people looking for a fundraising training program that goes in depth into how we can build investable businesses and investable teams.

The biggest problem entrepreneurs and small businesses face today is funding.

Our network of investors has helped us create this content because they want to see more quality opportunities cross their desk! These investors have taught us how they think, how they make decisions, and why some companies succeed (while others don’t). We’ve created content that falls under 3 distinct categories.
