Business Planning Process
Step 1. Let's Chat
First, we chat. You tell us about your business idea and your goals. This Free, no-cost, no-obligation review is the foundation of the overall vision and strategy for your business plan.
Step 2. Plan & Organize The Work
Next, we have an in-depth discussion about the business. We share ideas and marketing plans, uncovering issues and coming up with solutions.
We'll create a business model for your review. The review process may cycle back and forth several times between you, and the rest of our team, until we're satisfied and ready to write.
These discussions take place face to face, via email, phone or Skype© -- or a combination of all four.
Step 3. Get Writing
We roll up our sleeves and begin writing the first draft of your business plan and an accompanying financial model. We will address any issues or questions that come up as we write the plan. When the first draft is finished, we send it to you for review and feedback.
Step 4. Revise, Revise...Until It's Right
To get it right, one, two, three, or more drafts may be needed to fine-tune your business plan and financial model. With each revision, we get closer to the end result - a customized and compelling business plan for you to share with lenders and investors.
Step 5. Final Documentation
Your bound final copy of your business plan, financial model and, if purchased, a presentation slide deck will be shared with you. Unlocked electronic copies of all documents are also provided - so you can adjust your plan and financial model as your business grows.
The plan isn't complete until both you and the team at Consulting Canada are satisfied with its content and quality – and we are convinced that it gives your new venture the best possible chance to obtain financing.
Step 6. Personalized Ongoing Support
Your business plan is as unique as your business. We will support you every step of the way.
