[av_toggle title=’Do I really need a business plan?’ tags=”]
Any entrepreneur looking to secure funding from investors, lenders, crowdfunding platforms or venture capitalist firms will benefit from hiring our professional business plan writing services. We have the knowledge, expertise and experience and we know exactly the elements that a successful business plan should include; this means that the final product that we present to you will be exactly what your lender or investor wants to see.
You could easily spend over 200 hours preparing an investor-ready business plan, financial forecast, and investor presentation, even if you have done this before. Do you really have that sort of time available when you have so many other things to do to get your business up and running? This is time you should be spending building your team, product/service, distribution channels, and customer base. We will provide you with independent, third-party insights into your business, and crucially may raise questions that you might not have thought to ask.
If you are not looking to gain access to additional capital and your plan is more for strategic purposes then having us on your team can be advantageous too; we are not directly involved with your business and this means that we can be completely objective with you providing you with an open, honest assessment.
[av_toggle title=’How long do your business plans take to produce?’ tags=”]
Typically we expect to produce a first draft for you to review in 7 working days with your finished business plan ready in 2 weeks. We can provide a fact track service if required for an additional fee.
[av_toggle title=’Can I speak to you before I go ahead?’ tags=”]
Yes you can, and we encourage you to do so. We provide a FREE 30 minute consultation in which you can ask any questions that you have. It is also a good opportunity for us to get to know you a little and understand your business idea. If you would like to book your free consultation all you have to do is click here.
[av_toggle title=’Do you use business planning software to produce my business plan?’ tags=”]
Absolutely not! Our business plans are produced by actual human beings who have taken the time to get to know you and your business and who can therefore produce a professional, bespoke business plan that is unique to you and your business.
[av_toggle title=’Why should we use you and not someone else?’ tags=”]
We take the time to get to know you and your business. We are passionate about helping entrepreneurs to turn their vision into a reality and we therefore go that extra mile in order to ensure that the business plan that we prepare for you is the best that it can possibly be. We also understand what it is that a potential investor is looking for and therefore make every effort that you do not make the same mistakes that over 50% of entrepreneurs do who never get any investment.
[av_toggle title=’Do you provide full confidentiality?’ tags=”]
Yes we do. We are happy to sign a non disclosure agreement with you before proceeding; we do this with 95% of the clients that we work with. In any event, we will never disclose any information that you provide to us to anyone else without your prior consent.
[av_toggle title=’Why do you work with start ups?’ tags=”]
It’s simple. Your energy, passion and drive are infectious! We love to work with people who are not content to do what everyone else is doing and have that ‘get up and go’ in them that really makes a difference. If we can produce a professional tailor-made business plan for you that helps you on your way then we are more than happy to do whatever we can for you.
[av_toggle title=’Who would I be working with?’ tags=”]
At the start of the process you will be allocated a dedicated and experienced business plan writer who you will have access to every step of the way. They will take the time to fully understand you and your business and are there for you if you have any questions.
[av_toggle title=’What are your payment terms?’ tags=”]
We ask for a deposit of 50% when you engage our services, with a further 25% payable when we provide you with the first draft of your business plan. The final 25% is payable when your completed business plan is sent to you and you are 100% happy with it.

[av_toggle title=’Can we meet face-to-face?’ tags=”]
Yes, we could do that. However, we encourage you take advantage of our FREE 30 minute consultation first as face-to-face meeting incur additional costs and we feel that these costs would be better spent in your business. Having said this, we are of course happy to meet face-to-face if you still wish to do so.
