Business Plan Development and Appraisal

Every company should have a business plan whether they are trying to raise money or not. Simply stated, a business plan is essential for structuring the growth or expansion of your idea in to a successful company in the long run.

Having an effective blueprint or business plan eliminates guesswork and wasted or misdirected time. We can help you write your business plan either by writing and completing it for you or guiding you through the process.

Some of the typical components to include in your business plan are:

The first step of any Early-Stage company is to layout concrete, manageable goals for your business. The process of laying out and structuring goals can be complex and ties in all aspects of finance strategy. Having a well structured plan for growth and expansion is key to staying on track and fostering sustainable, effective growth within your company. SV will help you build a business plan and create goals to lead you through your growth period, as well as put you on the right track to accomplish or exceed these goals. In essence, these goals will structure and direct your company towards a path for long term success.

Financial projections, an important component of your business plan, should be calculated to help you understand your business and set tangible goals for your business. We can design the models or evaluate your projections to make sure they are complete and achievable goals. Even if you do not plan to raise money, it is essential to quantify your financial projections. They help you to be more efficient and are also a good measure of how your company is progressing. Since we have the operational expertise of running companies, we know what is realistic and what is not. We are equipped with more than just theories - we have the practical experience.
Identifying and qualifying your risk evaluation will aid you in knowing what are your potential pitfalls and roadblocks. You will avoid future problems by being proactive and evaluating your risks and taking action before these obstacles become insurmountable.

Some other examples that should be in your business plan are Breakeven Evaluation, Competitive Positioning, Targeted Performance Metrics, Opportunities, and Business Strategies. Although we do not advocate starting a company without a business plan, the least you should do is think of all of these components and points before venturing into something new.
