Incolo's Crowd Investability Program

Launch is a 3-month Investability Program that gives founders optionality on leveraging the investor crowd as a growth engine

$33B in Value from 4,850 Businesses 

From Main Street to High Growth Tech, the Investment Crowdfunding industry has generated $33B of company value from $1.1B raised since 2016.  Our founder community is part of that success.

Join Other Founders Growing Through Their Crowds

Jason Johnson, the Founder & CEO of HUBB Kitchens, created ‘co-working’ for food & drink entrepreneurs with his 1st location in Dec 2020. His investor crowd helped them land a collaboration with the REEF & RDU to create the 1st multi-faceted ghost kitchen in an airport in the country. Now his investor crowd is helping HUBB grow from 1 physical location in 2021 to 6 in 2022.

Desmond Wiggan and Co-Founder Aubrey Yeboah's startup BatteryXchange is the “Redbox of batteries” keeping you powered on the go. In 2021, they increased Annual Recurring Revenue (ARR) 500% over 2020 from connections their crowd of investors made. The crowd has also opened doors at top universities, healthcare entities, and professional sports teams.

Launch Focuses Founder On Answering One Question. Am I Investable?

You want to know as a founder that even if you weren’t raising capital, people would want to invest in your startup.  That is Incolo’s definition of “Investable” and  what we focus on with founders over the 3-month program.

 

CROWD-READY GOVERNANCE

Starting a company is easy. Having a structure ready for investors and growth is not.  We provide education and templates for Charters, Operating Agreements, Cap Tables, and more that have been used by companies expanding their teams, growing their businesses, and/or raising from the crowd.

 

TRACTION

Developing meaningful traction points towards a successful exit is not always about investment dollars in the door.  We help founders unpack how they can pour gas on the fire with a crowd on key areas of traction for business growth…

  • Marketing & Sales
  • Productizing Services
  • Pricing & Commission Models

 

TESTING THE WATERS

Founders can now collect reservations of interest up to $5M, but the focus of successful founders is leveraging the crowds to get feedback on their business, product, and valuation. Launch…

  • Includes in depth curriculum and weekly 1 on 1 sessions with founders as well as group sessions
  • Helps craft an investment marketing plan with tactics used by successful raises
  • Provides warm introductions to national and regional Investment Crowdfunding platforms such as Wefunder, Republic, Vicinity Capital, StartEngine, and more for founders to collect reservations of interest.
  • Helps founders understand how to position their startup story on platform to go after reservations

 

GO LIVE WITH YOUR RAISE

Let’s be honest.  Not every founder makes it to this step. Why?

Many founders never need to. During the Investability Program, they determine if they are ready and in many cases, determine they have other paths of growth and/or funding that may come 1st.  Whatever the case ends up being, founders in Launch exit with an Investability plan focused on optionality in their growth & funding pathways so they are positioned for success.
