Boab delivers a 6-month, world class, scaleup program designed to help the founders and management teams, of artificial intelligence startups. Scaleups are placed at the centre of a supportive ecosystem of partners and investors, who can provide direct hands-on assistance.
The program is specifically tailored for AI companies with existing revenue and traction, recognising that each company faces a unique set of challenges.
Accordingly, each team selected for Boab, is provided a bespoke program to help problem solve and unlock the next stage of significant company growth.
Boab understands - founders' time is precious. The program is designed so as not to waste time on innovation theatre or templated class work.
Boab provides a range of practical, hands-on, strategic and financial support:
1. Deep Dive: The program begins with a deep dive examining and assessing each facet of the business.
2. Bespoke Program: Performance metrics are set, and an agreed program schedule is tailored for the individual needs of the company.
3. Operational Support: Boab provides direct assistance where possible. For example, should a portfolio company need assistance creating a robust financial model, Boab will assign a consultant to build that model. Or, if a company requires AI
architecture optimisation, Boab will find the appropriate partner to provide hands on assistance.
4. Financial Support: Boab provides access to financial expertise - help leading a funding round, introductions to strategic investors, or reviewing and professionalising investment documents. Boab leverages Artesian's expertise and networks to help
scaleups breakthrough to a new stage of growth.
5. Other: Boab offers a variety of support services as outlined in the ‘Program Benefits’ section below.
As a venture capital investment program, Boab seeks to help artificial intelligence scaleups to breakthrough to the next level.
