If you’re starting a new business or expanding an existing business you need a solid business plan. And, if you’re looking for funding, banks and investors require a business plan to understand how you’re going to make money.
We’re business plan consultants, not business plan “writers” who quickly write up a document in a few days so that you have something to take into the meeting with the bank or investors.
Rushing through the business planning process is likely to produce a business plan that lacks substance and contains omissions and flaws. This reduces your chances of getting funded and jeopardizes the successful launch of your business.
Business Planning Consultants for B2B
Even if you’re not looking for external funding, a good business plan can make all the difference between success and failure of your business venture.
The business plan is your playbook for making the business successful and to ensure that you’ve thought of everything that’s needed to get the business started as well as for longer-term operations.
Complete Business Planning Support
Our business plan consulting aims to provide you with start-to-finish support during the development of your business plan. This support includes:
Conducting Market Research
We conduct market research to help you decide which target markets and products are the best suited for your business. This activity includes industry and competitive analysis.
Creating the Business Model
Developing and fine-tuning the business model that describes how your business venture is going to make money is a key aspect of business planning.
Developing Financial Forecasts
A good business plan needs to include comprehensive financial models, such as profit & loss forecasts, cash flow analysis, sales forecasts, an overview of start-up expenses, the cost of go-to-market launches, sales & marketing expenses, payroll expenses, taxes, etc.
Writing the Business Plan
Last, but not least, we create a professional-looking document for presenting your business venture. We make sure that your business venture is presented in the best light possible.
Additional Business Plan Consulting Services
If you don’t need complete support, we can still help you in a number of ways to make sure your efforts result in a business plan that presents your business venture in the best light.
Business Planning Coaching
Even if you’re able to do most of the business planning yourself, you might still want some advice along the way.
We guide you through the planning process, help you to avoid the common pitfalls, make sure you stay on track and make suggestions for improving the business plan.
Business Plan Makeover
If you have a business plan that needs to be updated or improved, we can help with a business plan makeover. This can range from a relatively minor revision to a complete overhaul.
Business Plan Review
Did you just complete your business plan? It might be useful to have it independently reviewed before presenting it to the bank or investors.
We’ll do a comprehensive review of your business plan and give you feedback and suggestions.
If you’re still in the early stages of defining your business idea, it may be too early to start developing a business plan. A Feasibility Analysis is a quick assessment of the viability of your business idea.
The results of the feasibility study may prevent you from wasting a lot of time, effort, and money on something that has a low likelihood of success.
Ask The Right Questions
Developing a business plan involves making decisions about many aspects of the business venture.
You need to start by asking fundamental questions, critical to the success of your new business.
As part of our business plan consulting we guide you through the planning process and make sure that all the right questions are asked. Next, we’ll develop sound answers to these questions.
A better business plan, in less time and with less aggravation
It takes time and considerable effort to develop a good business plan, especially if you try to do it on your own. More than likely, you’ll be going through multiple revisions before the business plan is complete.
Our business planning consultants work with you to produce a better, more complete business plan, in less time and with less aggravation. You’ll have more confidence in your business and your chances of success.
We become your advisor, sounding board, and business planning resource.
Working with a business planning consultant gives you more time to devote to other important tasks, such as developing your product, putting together your management team, hiring and training employees, negotiating with suppliers, and so on.
