A Clear Growth Story… Developing & Presenting Your Strategy For Investors

Investors obviously want to see a professional business plan supported by a good set of numbers, however, if it was as simple as that then far more businesses would experience fund raising success. The harsh reality is that 8 times more businesses looking for funding get rejected. Interestingly our research shows that the rejection is often for non-financial reasons.

Find out what investors really want in this webinar!

Investors tell us that too often they are presented with a strategy that is either overly complex or suffers from sloppy thinking. They want to see a clear roadmap that summarises how you get from where you are now to where you want to get to. If you can’t explain this in a coherent way they lose confidence in you and your business’s potential. This webinar will cover the following proven techniques:

• Tell me your growth story… why curating and presenting your strategy is crucial to pricking the Investor’s interest

• The 3-Year Visioning Orbit… the proven powerful technique to develop and present your business’ 3-Year Vision.

• Single Page Strategic Plan… the classic 1-year format that displays both your “Whats” and “Hows” together in what is in effect your blueprint for success.

This webinar is the first in a series of four providing business leaders seeking funding with the tools and techniques that address the most common non-financial rejection reasons. Armed with the tools and techniques addressing “What Investors really want”, will improve the number of successful funding offers you receive, plus the terms which you are offered.
