The Ready for Equity! Project was launched in October 2006 to identify and address the key issues impeding Business Angel activity across the European business community.
Following the creation of two curricula to create training programmes for Business Angels and fund seeking entrepreneurs, the project consortium developed specific training materials and methodologies to deliver seminars all over Europe. Today, the frequently updated sessions are delivered by the Ready for Equity! Academy ™ on a pan-European level.
During the Ready for Equity!™ project partners shared best practices, tools and mechanisms in place throughout the different regions in Europe to develop a structured and all-embracing training program targeted at improving the capacity of informal investors and Business Angels, and to prepare entrepreneurs seeking finance.
The results from the second RfE!™ project, RfE!2™ are the basis for the training package which has been successfully tested and delivered in 11 European countries.
