The Extras that come with this book!

EXTRA 1

The Investment Readiness Checklist (IRC)

The Investment Readiness Checklist (IRC) is an important diagnostic tool that helps you to objectively audit your current situation and find out how ready you really are to raise capital from investors.

With over 60 investor-grade questions, this checklist will help you to avoid all the guesswork by showing you how investors are really going to assess your business as an investment opportunity. It will help you to identify the key strengths in your business that are favourable to investors, and the major weakness and gaps that could turn off investors and negatively affect your chances of raising capital.

The IRC also includes commentary, suggestions, and recommendations that will help you understand the rationale behind investors' questions and provides tips and advice that will help you close the gaps, improve your weaknesses and consolidate your strengths.

The Investment Readiness Checklist is a digital download that is only available to anyone who buys the Plus or VIP version of the book.

“Before your book and courses, no financial institution accepted to fund my business despite all my endeavours. With advice I gathered from your online courses and the book you published (Jackpot), I opened a poultry farm, signed a funding partnership with ACEP, and a potential investment from a World Bank-sponsored animal development project.”

Stephen Atanga Wazeh

“Many thanks, John-Paul, for your hard work and persistence to deliver on supporting material for business entrepreneurs! I have bought your book (Jackpot) and have also shared the link with some people I believe are serious about running their own businesses. Your relentless work is truly playing a key role in shaping the economics of Africa for good.”
