If you are raising money or about to engage other risk taking activities in regards to your creative startup, a business plan is a must. The last thing you want to do is work on your startup for a few years, only to realize you were doomed to fail from the start. Many founders learn the hard way that they didn’t set aside enough capital to reach their goals, took on partners with the wrong skills and resources, or don’t have a viable way to make money. Developing and sharing a business plan can help ensure that you’re sprinting down the right path.
I will work with you closely to understand the needs of your company and write you an investor ready, detailed and complete business plan including a 3 year financial plan. Once the plan is completely written and modeled, you’ll have ample time for a thorough review and I will of course give your plan a polished, professional look that complements your company’s branding.
