Let me guess what brings you here: you have an idea, and you need an investment for a startup company. Or you work for a large company and want to get budget for your new project. Or you want to start a small business and you need a small business loan from the bank. You are here because you are afraid to fail when you present your business plan. Most people do.
Am I close?
If so–you came to the right place.
I founded several startup companies, wrote many business plans that raised tens of millions of dollars in investments, and got projects funded in large companies. I sold a company, and even bought a company. I wrote books about it, and taught this in universities.
But more important, I am an investor, and was part of several angel investor networks from Silicon Valley to Texas and Israel, where I made personal investments in startups. I also evaluated business plans for the State of Texas, and the State of Israel, and made project funding decisions in large and public companies.
As such, I only have a few minutes to snap-judge a business plan that comes across my desk. I will share with you what makes me (and other investors) stop, and decide whether to invest in a new business or not.
In this course you will learn the four rules of a successful business plan:
- Create something fundamentally different,
- Find the unique value to a specific market segment,
- Establish and maintain competitive advantage, and-
- Calculate the return on investment for your customer, your company, and your investor.
I will teach you how to assess your business, create the business plan, and present it to investors. I will do that with:
- 33 lectures (over 4 hours);
- 22 worksheets that will allow you to build your own business plan, step by step;
- 6 quizzes that will help you internalize the content;
- Personal examples; and-
- An Israeli accent…
At the end of this course, you will have an inside track on how investors and budget managers think, what are they looking for in a business plan, and what will make them invest in you!
I will teach you what I know now, but wish I knew when I created and presented my first business plan.
