If you’re starting a new business, expanding an existing business, or if you’re looking for financing, you need a solid business plan. With our experience in business planning consulting we can provide advice and guide you through the entire business planning process.
Business Planning for B2B Startups
Even if you’re not looking for external funding, a good business plan can make all the difference. It is your playbook for making the business successful.
Most of your effort should go into the “planning” activity itself: which customers to serve, what to sell, how to attract customers, how to beat the competition, and how to become profitable. In short, the business plan needs to show how you’re going to make money. You’ll need to work on every facet of the business, you can’t leave anything to chance.
A good business plan helps you to:
- Define the purpose of the business
- Identify operational and human resource needs
- Create P&L and Cash Flow forecasts
- Communicate the business opportunity
- Provide structure to the business
- Get funding
We specialize in business plan development for B2B firms. We guide entrepreneurs through the process by asking challenging questions, acting as a sounding board for ideas, and keeping the process grounded in reality. Developing a business plan involves making decisions about many aspects of the business venture, such as:
- How are we going to make money?
- Which markets to target, and why?
- What are we selling and how?
- How to attract and retain customers?
- How do we stand out?
- What prices to charge?
- Sales forecasts
- Pro-forma financial statements
- How much capital is needed?
- How to pay back investors?
Unless you have experience in business planning, it’s likely to take a lot of time and countless revisions to complete the business plan. You can save time and aggravation by working with a business planning consultant.
We’ll work with you on refining your business model, testing assumptions, conducting market research, and developing sales forecasts. As a result, you’ll have more confidence in your business and your chances of success.

Business Plan Makeover
If your existing business plan did not get a positive response from investors or it needs to be updated, we can help. A Business Plan Makeover may involve a re-write, or it may take a comprehensive revision of the business model, go-to-market strategy, and financials.
Business Concept Feasibility Analysis
If you’re in the early stages of developing your idea or concept for launching a company firm, it may worthwhile to carry out a Feasibility Analysis first, before you start the formal business planning process.
The feasibility analysis provides quick insight into the viability of your business idea and may prevent you from putting a lot of time, effort, and money into something that’s not likely to be successful.
Working with an experienced business planning consultant speeds up the process and produces a better result.
