The Most Fundable Companies initiative aims to educate founders on the investor diligence process and recognize exceptional entrepreneurs who are solving today’s problems with inventive solutions and are also seeking investment capital to fuel their company's growth.
“We are a small company, with big ambitions. Recognition as an investable startup helps improve our funding prospects and brings us one step closer to achieving market leadership,” said Dr. Ira Spector, CEO and Co-founder. “The Most Fundable Companies initiative was a transformative experience providing us with a data-driven analysis and roadmap to secure private investment. Small business ingenuity is the life-blood of the US economy. We are excited that the Pepperdine Graziadio Business School is giving entrepreneurs a platform to showcase their business and set them up for success with investors.”
