Business Plan Tips

What Investors Are Looking For In A Plan

Investors, whether angels or VC's, are looking for the same things when reading a business plan. They want to know how big the opportunity is, whether this is the right team to exploit the opportunity, who the competition is, what the risks are, and why they can expect this team to implement successfully. Your job in writing the business plan is to address these questions convincingly and clearly.

Emphasize Your Real Strengths

Highlight what your team brings to the table. If your business hinges on a particular competency (for example, understanding the procurement process), your plan will be more persuasive if one of your team members knows something about it and that is brought out in your plan. Rather than including generic resumes of team members, tailor the resumes to draw out the experience each member has that will make him or her a valuable contributor.

Get To The Point And Make It Clear And Comprehensive

Investors see many business plans. A 20-page plan which clearly lays out your business is far more likely to be read than a 100 page plan. Today, some entrepreneurs are using a 15 slide Powerpoint presentation. If your text is short and punchy, you won't need to repeat yourself, because the reader won't be bogged down keeping ten chapters in their head. Reading the same thing over and over, even if it's in different words, can get really tiring. The more you use brevity and give each concept a single home in your document, the more people will want to read it.

Write In Plain English

If you can't explain your idea in English, either you don't understand what you're talking about (What is a transaction enabled atomic journaling database server, anyway?) or you haven't simplified the idea enough. Think, revise, and try again.

Get Rid Of The Hype

Yes, we know you will be the "premier insert product category here of the Internet, achieving 99% market penetration with 60% customer retention in 3 months". Your product will reach "new heights in customer experience through the use of personalization and one-to-one profiling and customization". It will be "user friendly" because you will be creating a truly "ecstatic customer experience". It is a "quantum leap forward" in the marketplace for product category here. Um, yeah. Believe me, we've read it before. About a dozen times today, in fact. (And by the way, the phrase "quantum leap" really doesn't mean anything.) Stick to a tight, simple explanation of your idea. Convince your reader you'll be the best because your idea is the best, not because you can string a dozen buzzwords together.

Use Quantifiable Information

In each section, back up your assertions with solid facts. Even if you are a new venture and cannot give specific figures on the performance of your business, quote figures for the industry or your competitors. These real figures carry more weight than your assumed projections and give more reality to your plan.

Choose A Huge Market

Especially in the internet world, investors are looking more at the market than at the detailed specifics of your financials. Choose a market that is big enough to be an obvious good opportunity. A business which targets teenage girls who listen to music and has a reasonable chance of capturing 90% of the girls that are online is a huge opportunity. A business which targets net-savvy SAAB mechanics who need prosthetic limbs is not.

Originally from Malaysia, now based in Ontario, I carry 20+ years of professional business experience in various fields from trading to distribution. I currently operate a niche investment and consulting firm where we work with businesses on developing their strategies and growth plans, and where possible we jointly invest in them. I have hands on experience in joint ventures, M&A and various forms and structures for funding a business. I also have direct management experience (bottom line responsibility) that I could certainly use to share best practices in management and business. I am both an individual and group investor depending on the opportunity at hand. I look forward to working with you.

I am an analyst at a entrepreneurial fund in Toronto interested in acquiring a business that is interested in preserving its legacy while the existing ownership team retires or wishes to transition out. We are looking for a business with 5 to 50MM in sales, or 1-5MM in EBITDA (Cash Flows) that are profitable and stable. We are relatively industry agnostic, but prefer a business with strong fundamentals in a growing industry. The fund is backed by experienced investors (C-Suite investors of F500 companies, accomplished entrepreneurs, and private equity funds) who have experience in growing SMEs from 5-50MM in sales to 500MM+ in sales. If your business fits these characteristics, I am more than happy to connect and discuss this further. Thanks. Chen.

I am an individual investor. I have operated a clothing store and other micro-enterprises. My passion to be in business for myself or with a partner comes from actively participating with my late father in purchasing and operating various businesses.

I am flexible when it comes to the level of participation and will be something that will be determined by the opportunity that is presented.
