Innovative Dubuque LLC - Business Plans

By failing to prepare, you are preparing to fail.”

Benjamin Franklin

When a business is trying to secure debt or equity financing they need a plan. For debt financing having a business plan is crucial, as is having well thought out financial projections. The business plan shows that the organization understands its business model and that the vision can be communicated in a practical way to a lender. Without being able to do chances are low that funding will be secured from lenders. Innovative Dubuque LLC uses a time tested templated to get the most important items right. We help clients to make sure key assumptions are clearly being identified. The key elements of any successful business plan include being able to at least:

  • Communicate the vision for the business or expansion
  • Concisely communicate the most important business information
  • Convey key assumptions from the business model and financial statements

It is important to remember the goal of writing a business plan is to gain financing. We have helped hundreds of clients gain financing, including several very large multi-million dollar projects. We do this by understanding what lenders need to know and helping the entrepreneurs to communicate this information and leave out the fluff. It is important to know what to leave out as complicated year three plans or other possibilities can distract from the clarity needed for lenders and investment committees to be comfortable with loaning money. As you can see below we have options starting with a simple business plan review and going all the way to working with you from start to finish. What you are best to choose depends on where you are at in the process and how much of the work you are looking for help with. For those looking not sure where to start, we recommend starting with a financial projection first and then develop the business plan as it makes for a better end product and narrows the focus.
