In the Investable Blueprint, Startup and Growth Stage Entrepreneurs are Able to Systematically Transform their Vision, Culture, Strategy, Identity, and Business Acumen  by Focusing on Building Enterprise Value and Preparing their Companies for Investment.

Over the past few decades, the team at Be Investable has refined the methodologies to systematically increase company valuations and professionalize organizations. This has helped entrepreneurs raise capital, sell their companies, acquire talent, and increase sales. You may be wondering, how has our process changed over the years?

We used to believe that making an entrepreneur an amazing pitch deck would help them raise capital.

handshake (1)

We used to believe that if we just taught entrepreneurs business acumen skills, then they would be competent enough to effectively communicate with investors.

tools (1)

We used to believe that entrepreneurs just needed to be given the tools, and they would be able to figure it all out.

But giving them the ‘fish’ doesn’t teach them how to fish. This line of thinking exasperates  entrepreneurial friction – the #1 killer of momentum .

Momentum is the entrepreneurial drug that’s sought by business owners and CEO’s across the world.  Once an entrepreneur feels the rush of momentum, they want to take another ‘hit.’

So they go and buy another product or program.  Or go listen to another podcast, or watch another webinar.

And rarely do these things solve the problem. In fact, they tend to make things worse because they are only another “fish.”The distractions and ‘cognitive overload’ that’s experienced by entrepreneurs in the 21st century is unprecedented.

There are so many things to focus on that nothing gets done.  By focusing on everything, we end up focusing on nothing.

Remember:

  • What you focus on you find
  • What you focus on seems real
  • What you focus on grows
  • What you focus on you become

A mile wide and an inch deep is a recipe for spinning your wheels, month after month, year after year.

So as we started to uncover the problems to the solutions we were implementing, we discovered a process.  A means by which an entrepreneur could create the tools necessary to increase enterprise value and appeal to investors.

The linear path we created was not straightforward at first.  We went through an iteration process, much like every other entrepreneur out there.

We split this systematic process into six modules that would help entrepreneurs build the enterprise value of any company.  By teaching the entrepreneur to fish, we found that they were becoming investable along with their companies. By the end of the program, entrepreneurs were able to clearly identify the problems within their business, and come up with innovative solutions from within.  We were no longer forced to give entrepreneurs the answer, rather, we focused on helping them find the answers within themselves based on their business and their identity.

This is how we knew we were on the right track. The entrepreneurs we were working with

  • Became more
  • Were equipped to overcome the obstacles in their business.
  • Had a clear vision for each area of their company.
  • Understood how to create effective strategies and execute on their game plan.
  • Had the finance skills necessary to navigate the financial markets.
  • Were seeing the valuations of their companies increase.
  • Had the attributes to be leaders for their teams and organizations.

So we decided to take the training and programs we have been doing in person for years with thousands of entrepreneurs,  and automate the experience so that entrepreneurs could go through the process step by step, on their own time.

How do we know that the Investable Blueprint works?

The team at Be Investable brought dozens of entrepreneurs through this process hands on before we decided to automate the programming.  During the launch process, we walked hand in hand with entrepreneurs to make sure the automated program properly emulated the program we were doing hands on. After working out a few kinks, we were able to streamline the process, and allow entrepreneurs to go through our system on their own time.

How long will it take me to go through the Investable Blueprint?

The Investable Blueprint is a self driven, 6 module program.  We turned this into an automated program because we realized that entrepreneurs who are in the middle of the capital raising process didn’t have time to go through a hands on program over a few months.  We realize that every entrepreneur is on a different timeline, and the Investable Blueprint makes sure you can go as fast or slow as you please.

What are the sizes of investment that are typically raised by people who go through the Investable Blueprint?

Entrepreneurs who successfully complete the Investable Blueprint typically go on to raise anywhere between $50,000 to a few million. Business owners who are raising more than that typically like to work with us one on one. For the self driven, startup entrepreneur, the Investable Blueprint is the perfect guide to properly navigate the investment process.

What if I have no experience raising capital or running a business?

The Investable Blueprint is made for entrepreneurs of all shapes and sizes.  We make sure to cultivate your business acumen throughout the program so that by the end, you can feel comfortable communicating your business to an investor. The language of finance is quite easy once you get the hang of it.  We make sure to bring you along in the process so that you understand the fundamentals of business, and their impacts on your company.
