ADDITIONAL SERVICES THAT WE OFFER

The Crowd for Angels’ team have almost 100 years’ combined experience in reviewing and writing business plans for growth companies. We offer the following services to help your business plan stand out amongst the crowd, crucial in attracting new investors.

Business plan writing

While all companies are different, business plans tend to have a broadly standard structure in order to provide key information to investors. Working with your company management we can put together a concise and attractive business plan to present to potential investors. Some key points we will cover include:

Executive Summary

While this comes at the front of the document, it is the last thing to be written. Here, the key themes of your business plan must be chosen so investors get a feel of your company and are encouraged to find out more.

Operations

This is the core part of your business plan, describing to investors exactly what your company does, why it is good at it and what successes you have had to date.

Market and opportunities

Investors need to know that you know your industry inside out before they will part with their cash. Your key competitors should be discussed but more importantly, highlight how your industry is growing and how you intend to expand your business within it.

Forecasts

Ultimately, the success of a business boils down to the numbers. Investors will expect to see at least three years of credible forecasts for your company, ideally with an explanation of how they will be achieved.

Team

Small businesses are all about management so highlight the strengths of your team, relevant industry experience and qualifications so potential investors know you are well qualified to lead the business forward.

Exit Opportunities

Investors are not being charitable when they give you their money. In the long term they are looking to make a return on their investment. Give them some guidance on how exactly you intend to deliver returns, whether it be via dividends, share buy backs, an IPO or trade sale.
