Highly experienced business plan consultants

We aim to tailor the service to your requirements, at a cost you can afford and we guarantee that if you follow our advice, funding will not be refused as a consequence of errors or omissions in the plan. We will ensure that your plan contains everything needed for your funder to make an informed choice and we won't force you to include irrelevant information just because we've got a topic heading. Your plan, therefore, will be clean and crisp in a structure and format expected by banks and investors. In other words, your plan will be exactly what banks and investors want to see.

Every business and business owner’s circumstances are different, but we have used our extensive experience to put together 13 of the most common combinations of business plan content, additional help from us, deliverables and method of working with you. Chances are one of these will be suitable for you, but you can also mix and match elements from each of these packages to create your own unique service, for which we’ll confirm the best possible fixed price, upfront.

We can work with you via face to face meetings, in a location convenient for you, or using a combination of our interactive data collection form, skype, email and phone calls. We’ll work in whatever way you prefer.

Whether you need a basic, simple business plan or have complex funding needs, requiring a combination of loans, business angel and venture capital investment through several funding rounds, or anything in between, we have a service that will be suitable.

If you're a new business about to launch you might be interested in our Start-up Special package. This package includes everything you need to get your funder-ready business plan, an entry level website, free hosting for 12 months plus limited company incorporation and a set of master forms for your company books.

If you're an existing business looking to establish the best way forward, you may want our development workshop service or if you're a relatively new, smaller concern, you may want one of our multiple meeting services.

If you need a plan to support your T1 visa application, we have a lot of experience and services specifically tailored to this objective.

Perhaps you’re looking to do an offer for share subscription, then you may want to include our brochure style offer to subscribe document.

It goes without saying that our researchers can do your desktop market research, your desktop competitor research and any local demographic work needed.

If you need a pitching deck or even a pre-pitching plan review, we've got services for those too.

We genuinely can work with you to provide the best service, no matter what your requirements are, we can even coordinate your plan to your logo and corporate colourway.

Get in touch with us today to discuss your requirements and we’ll recommend the best level of service for you and confirm the fixed cost.

Your Service X Plan 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!
