Business Plan Writer and Investor - Needed for new project


I have the option of setting up a new venture (not in Switzerland).
Prelim numbers look good, but now I need to put them into a format agreeable to banks/investors/equity partners etc…. All needs to be in English first.

Not looking for a free service. Any body know a contact

Also required is a significant investor for it. (approx 800K USD). Pay back term 3 years at 12% per annum, as a initial thought.

800K $, that is almost 1m SFr. Tell us more? What sort of business requires a capital injection of this amount?

Would be able to provide further input if you're able to share more info on the project profile, here or offline.

You're looking for CHF1 million: There's 12%pa return. Money back in 3 years. And you can't write your own business plan, so you post details to a public forum. Right...

AbFab, that's not so unusual ... there's a lot of smart people who have good ideas, but lack the know-how to wrap up the idea in a marketable package.. I'd give the OP the benefit of the doubt.

Cameranz, contact me offline if you are able to provide basic info on what you have in mind... I can help you locate potentially interested partners.

Actually for most venture capital types it would be too small for them to get involved! From previous experience I have found you need to be looking for about CHF20M before they get interested.....

The Business Navigator from the Institute for start-up entrepreneurs is a useful tool to create and structure your business plan. The output is in German if I remember correctly, but there may be an English version available.

Re: Business Plan Writer and Investor - Needed for new project

Hi,

I have experience writing almost 100 business plans for Australian businesses. Mainly they were people from overseas who were looking to migrate to Australia and start a business.

I think I would be able to help you. I can do market research and analysis, industry analysis, help you develop business strategies and apply them to forecast financials for about 1 to 3 years ahead. I can also put the business plan into a very readable format that can easily be read by investors and bankers.

I have had similar experience, though on a smaller scale. My husband and I wanted to start a French creperie in Melbourne, Australia. I wrote the business plan and took it to banks. The business bankers were very impressed by the depth of the plan and the forecasts.

Let me know if I can help you. Of course it won't be for free; my time is precious!

Penelope
