// Twelve startups will face 12 challenges over the course of three days for the chance to secure over $250,000 in investment…
Investible is an early stage investment group that provides high potential founders the financial, human and intellectual capital needed to scale. The company will host The Investible Games in Melbourne this month from June 27-29 and later in Bangkok with dates to be advised.
Creel Price, Investible co-founder said the three day format of the Games creates a ‘fast and furious’ way for investors and startups to interact.
“The best startups aren’t willing to spend 8 or 12 weeks in accelerator programs, and they’re also not prepared to give a small amount of equity away for doing the program,” he said.
Founders who participate in the Investible Games will compete across 12 specific challenges over three days.
The challenges are designed to assess and educate teams on their understanding of the problem, their business model, traction and critical business functions, all under the watchful eye of investors, business leaders and corporate innovators.
“Every startup in the world should go through something like this.”Mark Mendel – Founder of 99starts and former Investible Games competitor
Winners of each challenge will win $500 cash plus a six month membership to Investible’s Circle Club, a membership network where founders can connect with C-suite executives, high net worth investors, and leading entrepreneurs as well as prizes from partners such as Amazon.
In addition, Investible and digital analytics technology company Digivizer has partnered to provide a 12-month Digivizer Starter Plan and digital marketing strategy consultancy to the winners of the Customer Acquisition Challenge.
Emma Lo Russo, CEO of Divigizer said when growing a business, it is important to acquire customers and test market fit quickly.
“With Digivizer, startup companies taking part in these Investible Games can set up a continuous marketing testing environment, and use the real-time insights this gives them to make better decisions about where to spend budget,” she said.
