Highly experienced business plan consultants

Our standard business plan service provides a detailed business plan write-up, pitched at the level of detail typically required by large funders and investors and significant stakeholders. The projections are also sufficiently detailed to enable use as budgets for performance measuring, and more.

We can develop the business model, do the necessary desktop market and competitor research, produce all the financial forecasts, quantify the funding requirement and give you a complete funder or investor-ready professional business plan in a choice of formats.

 

Standard Business Planning Service Includes

Two face-to-face or Zoom video meetings with your consultant

With this package, you will be able to have two zoom calls or face-to-face meetings with your consultant to discuss your business model and work through exactly what is needed to secure funding.

Detailed desktop market research

Market research is crucial to finding success and excelling within your industry. We have the resources needed to be able to acquire all information needed to show that you are finding a niche in your market, either when starting up or developing your business model.

Detailed competitor landscape desktop research

Knowing that you have strengths over competitors as well as being able to identify any weaknesses, opportunities or threats is invaluable information, to ensure that your business model and growth strategy is viable.

Five-year, detailed financial projection tables and graphs

It is important that you can show that your business will grow post-funding, and that is something we can create in an investor/funding-friendly format. Therefore, you will receive five-year financial projection tables and graphs, with the first two years by month.

 

Completed business plan e-mailed in word format

All of our business plans are written in professional report writing language and structured in the format expected by investors. We then deliver the finalised business plan straight to your inbox.

 

 

 

One set of amends

We know how precious any business is to its owner, so having the opportunity to provide your amendments to your plan means that you know the tone and feel of your plan is right for you, but also that it is written with an investor/funder in mind, using our expertise.

The initial stages of change for a business can be a challenge and you may have concerns or questions, so we will be at hand to help!
