Business Plan – Creating the Investor Ready Business Plan ©Copyright
For the purpose of attracting new investors, McKerns Development and PR creates a professional quality Business Plan to be used for the purposes of attracting investors and investment capital to the company and its target business market.
McKerns Development and PR recommends phasing the Business Plan into two Phases:
Phase I: An Investor Ready Presentation, used to attract, interest and pre-qualify potential investors, whether venture capitalists, angel investors, affiliates or partners, and;
Phase II: A detailed Investor Ready Business Plan, structured to show the strength of the parent company, present the business proposition and its attractive future for potential investors.
The Investor Ready Presentation provides a powerful marketing, PR and sales tool that can be used while the Business Plan is being created and after, for presentation in person, for download on websites, in seminars, investor meetings and for digital and direct marketing.
The Investor Ready Presentation:
The Investor Ready Presentation allows the business to test the market, attract initial interest and qualify or pre-qualify interested parties. The Investor Ready Presentation shows fundamentals in an easy-to-comprehend, attractive graphic format: It details the business idea, describes the history, qualifications, talent and track record of the parent company, shows past track record and future-forward projections.
The Investor Ready Presentation unveils a winning idea, a novel or time proven strategy and overcomes skepticism or objection with facts and answers to frequently asked questions. It indicates the potential for investment and return from investors (Angel Investors, Venture Capitalists, Affiliates, Partners and others.) It details timeframes for investment, growth and return on investment.
