Business Plans

Every business needs a business plan. It is a roadmap for a company's future. If you're committed to starting or growing your business, you need a business plan. Even if you don't need investment. Even if your business is already launched. Even if you're making a ton of cash. You need to know where you're going, how to get there, and how to know whether or not you got there. A well thought out and carefully structured business plan is the key to your long-term success and without it, a business is likely to drift along without direction or a means for measuring progress.

That’s where we come in.

Whether you need a $10,000 loan, a $10 million investment, or just a place to discuss your ideas, we have a business plan solution for you. Our professionals have written hundreds of business plans, financial forecasts, and investor presentations that have helped companies achieve both their short and long-term goals.

Invest in Success
We Make it Easy
A Solid Foundation

Like most things in life, you usually get what you pay for. Investing in a professional business plan, is a smart, strategic move that will set your business up for increased long term profits.

As an example, consider that your business will earn you a profit of $50,000 and grow 5% annually. Over a 20-year period, that amounts to just over $1,600,000 in profit. As professional business consultants, if we offer insights and information in our plan that increase that profit by just an additional 10% annually, your business will earn in excess of $5,100,000 over that same 20-year period.

An average business plan may not be enough to even get your business started. A good business plan could earn you $1.6 million. A professional business plan could earn you well over $5.1 million.

Can you really afford to go with a cheap plan?

Most business owners simply cannot dedicate the necessary attention that developing a professional business plan requires.

Time: Even a below-average business plan can take months to complete. Writing your own business plan takes you away from operating and growing your business.

Expertise: Yes, there are software programs and sample business plans available online. But, knowing what to write and applying it to the particularities of your business is challenging and frustrating.

Content: Creating financial projections and deciding which elements of your business to include or omit can be difficult. Making the right or wrong decisions can be the difference between growth and stagnation.

Do these roadblocks sound familiar?

Whether you’re just getting your business off the ground, or you’re already an established business owner, a professional business plan will give your business a distinct competitive advantage with lenders and investors.

Your business needs a professional business plan in order to:

• Secure funding
• Plan for strategic in-house direction
• Encourage business growth
• Allocate resources effectively
• Enable business acquisitions

Put your business in the best possible position to succeed with a customized, professional business plan that's targeted to meet the goals of your business.

Lay the groundwork, the foundation, to your business' future success.

Financial Projections - Getting it Right

We prepare pro forma financial forecasts for our business plans that have over the years helped to raise millions of dollars for our clients. Our financial projections are prepared according to high industry standards and in relation to specific characteristics of each market sector.

Investors, bankers and venture capitalists are essentially financial money managers who must identify the strengths and weaknesses of a business plan to determine if they will make money by “from” an investment into your venture. They need to see pro forma financial projections that conform to industry standards and that are similar in structure to business models in the same space.

Genesis Business Solutions takes the time to prepare financial projections in the right way. We have identified and tracked hundreds of business models in many industry sectors. The pro forma financial models we develop for our business plans feature considerable detail and can be adjusted to take into account market fluctuations. By using GBS to develop your financial projections, you will be secure in your presentations to the investment community.

Put our Experience to Work for You

Due to important differences in every business model, GBS custom builds every plan individually.  We properly research and support your business model and write about your plan in an engaging manner that draws in the reader. We are on your team and want your business plan to join the hundreds of business plans prepared by GBS that have successfully been funded by VC’s, investors and bankers.

Let Us Write Your Business Plan While You Run Your Business

Once we are on your team, we work diligently on your behalf to deliver the highest quality, confidential business plans, executive summaries, Power Point’s and other services for startups and later stage companies of all sizes. Our clients have had capital requirements of between $200,000 up to over $100,000,000.

Business Plans for Every Industry Sector

We have completed business plans for companies from sectors such as technology, resources, clean tech, energy, internet, health care, pharmaceuticals, entertainment, hospitality and manufacturing. We treat every sector individually and ensure that the latest statistics and research supports the financial models pertinent to that sector. We have worked on complex business models with sophisticated patented technologies and captured the strategies and particular scientific language for each sector. We are able to work in every industry sector and welcome all inquiries.

Supported by Market Research

We include comprehensive market research with every business plan. Our market research is current and from credible sources. It helps investors to better understand the value of a product or service, and the competitive advantages that a company can leverage to gain market share and achieve maximum revenue potential. We begin the process with a thorough industry analysis that includes researching the size of the market, current trends, demographics and competition. We prepare colored charts and graphs that display the research in detail. We cite the sources in footnotes or in the text.

Original Content and No Templates

We customize every business plan to industry standards and do not use templates. There are serious drawbacks to using a business plan template. One of them is that the financial sections of the software may not support complex or sophisticated business modeling required by many plans. Another is that market research does not always follow the same pattern and can require vastly different elements for various industries. There are many deficiencies in templates and they do not come up to the standards offered by a GBS Business Plan.

Our Business Plans include the following:

  • A multi-hour and up to two day business strategy meeting with our senior financial experts to insure that we accurately understand the intricacies of your business and your financial model fairly reflects your past and present financial position as well as your future expectations.
  • A professionally designed cover page that compels investors and attracts their interest in investing with your company.
  • An Executive summary that is designed to further engage the investor with additional intensity and passion about your venture.
  • A Market section that thoroughly highlights the details of your industry and market sectors with an in-depth competitor analysis and a comprehensive marketing plan.
  • A Products and Services section that gives an investor a full description of your business and its differentiation within the industry.
  • A segment on your company’s organization and its senior management.
  • Comprehensive financial model with thorough financial projections for five years with income statements, balance sheets, cash flow statements and all significant assumptions.
  • All presented in a clear and concise final set of Business Plan documents in both PDF soft copy and professionally printed hard copy for immediate distribution.
