As professional consultants, we see the need for these reports for many purposes. Aside from grant funding, these business planning documents are used by other authorities that are crucial to the business or project viability. We prepare these reports for use by multiple stakeholders. The most common uses for such reports are grant funding, bank financing, internal planning, or investor financing.

Grants

In the competitive environment of grant funding, you need to distinguish your project from others to convince the government grant authorities that your project is worthy of their support. Our ultimate goal is to make your application the most technically sound, informative, comprehensive, convincing, and factual against all others. The report we prepare for you will have a strong narrative that will meet the rigorous standards of the grant authority. The report goes above and beyond the minimum requirements of the grant applied for to withstand any scrutiny or uncertainty.

Invest or Financing

Generally, companies that are new including start-ups that employ new technology, provide unique business services or products will find it more difficult to obtain bank financing. They will need to raise capital from other sources such as private angel investors or venture capital firms. These capital investors are successful entrepreneurs or business executives who have a large selection of investments to choose from. As a result, they expect reports from a company seeking capital that is detailed, accurate and extensive. This may include: market research, what-if analysis, financial projections, and other supplementary materials like charts, graphs, sample contracts, intellectual property documentation.

Internal Planning

The report can be used to guide internal planning such as financial projections, budgeting and production planning. It can be also used as a performance measurement tool to evaluate future performance against.

Bank Financing

Banks like stable, consistently growing businesses with proven business models and lots of collateral (equipment, land, buildings). Banks will look at the financial projections, market opportunity analysis, and competitor analysis when evaluating a company’s business viability for lending considerations.
