Welcome to BizPlanBuilder Welcome to BizPlanBuilder ®
Powered x BizPlanBuilder® What lenders & investors want to know Building a business requires more than just an idea and a plan. For a moment (and you may need to refer to this moment often), put yourself in an investor's shoes... What would YOU want to know about a business before you invested in it? We often recommend investing (or imagine investing) in a friend's business just to get the mental, physical, emotional, and spiritual experience of investing your precious CASH in someone elses business. Now, more than ever, you must be convincing to the bone. And, expect that intelligent people with money will feel comfortable with you and your answers. You will find that, no matter who you are and what you are doing, youre going to need answers to these basic questions (Next slide):
Powered x BizPlanBuilder® Who are you and why are you in business? What is the situation/pain/need in the world and how big is the market? What is the opportunity here and what are you selling? How is your business structured and how will you make money? Who are your most important customers? How will you reach and inspire them to buy from you? Who else is doing the same thing and how do you compare? Do you have any strategic partners who will help? Who are the people running your business and what experience do you/they have? Who are your advisors and who is (will be) on your board? Where are you today and what have you accomplished so far? How much money do you need and what will you do with it? Whats the deal for investors and how much of your company will they get? When & how will investors or lenders make their money back? Your business plan must make sense!
