Learn how to create an investor grade Business Plan guided by the experts!

All new or expanding businesses need capital. However, only the most successful businesses are well planned and well capitalized. This means having the ability to access capital when you need it. The revised Funding Workbook is designed to help you be well prepared, then lead you to become well capitalized. Our experience on the inside of funding projects allows us to share this knowledge by outlining the most critical aspects that many other business plans overlook — those absolutely necessary to funding success! One of our plans secured $100 Million Dollars for the project within 60 days.

Libraries, bookstores, and the Internet are full of financial "how to" books. We highly recommend you read as many as possible. These books can be a useful generic guide for sources of capital, debt versus equity financing, business planning, goal setting, etc.

Although the Funding Workbook does discuss these topics, its main focus will cover the essential information necessary to present your plan to lenders or investors; how to package your request in order to get noticed; what format your presentation package should take; and, the best type of funding sources available for securing the capital you are looking for including the critical information all sophisticated investors expect to find outlined in your plan.

The vital difference in this book is that it will guide you to create an investor grade business plan using the principals known by every funding professional. There are as many types of plans with different focus' as there are authors of them. However, it takes the inside knowledge of a true funding professional to truly understand, and be able to satisfy the requirements of the sophisticated investor.

This book outlines critical information needed for the preparation of your plan — all from the point of view of the investor. It will also highlight the key elements of your Executive Summary, including the necessary players, strategic positioning, market strategy and penetration, competition, use of funds, repayment plans, pro-forma financial projections, preparation of your final presentation, types of funding, negotiating and structuring the deal plus offering a variety of useful resources.
