If you want to borrow money or attract investors, you’ll have to show your forecasts, and explain how you came up with the numbers. The numbers should be realistic and feasible. Your business plan needs to show your understanding of the intended business, the target market, and its challenges. And it all has to make sense. Inconsistencies will ruin everything before you even get started!
Peter, and our business consultants, copy writers, financial planners, business analysts and business strategists with more than 100 years of cumulative experience on a global scale will help you to define your goals, strategies and competitive edge, fine tune your unique selling proposition, identify and quantify your target markets in the Portland area. We provide realistic calculations for sales estimates and expenses, and optimize your proposed business model as is necessary.
STEP 1: PROJECT ASSESSMENT
We will have a free initial chat using phone, email, Skype or Webex to discuss the details of your project.
STEP 2: INFORMATION GATHERING
We will indicate the initial amount to pay to get started. After receiving your initial payment, we start collecting all the information for your business and market area.
STEP 3: WRITING THE PLAN
We get started on the draft. Information that is missing will be gathered doing the necessary research incl. the Portland, ME area requesting your input as is needed.
While writing the business plan and projecting the financials, we search for strengths, weaknesses, opportunities and threats (SWOT analysis). We also analyze how your business is influenced by Political, Economic, Social and Technological factors (PEST analysis). After all, you want your business plan to be as good as it can be and offer a viable business opportunity.
No business plan is complete without market data. We can do the necessary market research for you, if needed.
STEP 4: REVIEWING THE DRAFT
Once we are satisfied with the initial draft, we will send it to you for your review. After discussing any additions or amendments you would like to make with you, we finalize your business plan.
STEP 5: COMPLETING THE BUSINESS PLAN
After adding to or changing the draft as discussed during the review, we complete your business plan, and (if also ordered) your financial projections and investor pitch.
We keep a timesheet so you can monitor the time spent on your project. All files created will be available for download on our site in a secure client area. Any additional files -- such as market data for Portland ME, helpful guides, and so forth -- gathered for your project will also be available there.
Getting an investor's attention in a 10 minute time span is crucial if you are looking to succeed with funding your idea. Everything you must include in the investor pitch for your business startup or expansion in Portland, ME will be expertly prepared. In some cases, it may also be a good idea to create a video presentation as your investor pitch.
Small to medium-sized Portland business plan projects can be completed in 10-14 days. For bigger projects we estimate the possible time required after an initial assessment. The complexity and time needed of any project in Portland typically depends on type of plan, items to include, type of funder/investor and their requirements, immigration service requirements, preferred format, required research, and last but not least the completeness of data provided. Bigger projects in Portland can be completed in 14-30 days, but we have also worked on projects that took more than 6 months (it all depends on the project).
We have 35+ years of experience with business plan writing for thousands of customers and for hundreds of business types on a global scale.
We can write your business plan in English, Nederlands (Dutch), Deutsch (German), or Portuguese.
We have expertise and experience in all aspects of small to large sized business plan writing around the world.

As our slogan indicates:
You can trust us to ensure the privacy and confidentiality of your data, with your best interests always being our priority.
We can boast a 100% approval rate!
Albeit that in some cases, the review board came with additional requests not mentioned in the visa requirements. After providing whatever was requested, the visa was always obtained. We therefore include certain details by default or advice you to get whatever we think may be needed. We can work with your lawyer if needed to ensure you fulfill all legal requirements.
Can you pitch our plan to the right contacts?
Yes, we can present your plan to contacts globally (we receive a small commission if successful). Our CEO is an investment broker for several large investment funds. Whether they are inclined to consider your proposal depends on their field of interest and, naturally, the feasibility of your (ad)venture. We can also guide you towards obtaining the necessary funds. In certain instances, the SBA may be a suitable option.
