How to Create an Investor-Ready Business Plan

The business plan for your startup – which can be expressed in an Executive Summary, an Investor Pitch, or a detailed Business Plan – is a foundational requirement when you’re raising angel funding. Investors need to understand your business, and the burden of clear communication is squarely on your shoulders. In this session I’ll cover the main elements of a business plan (including financial projections) and how to present them in each format. We’ll also discuss how to use these documents to connect with angels, deliver your investor pitch, and close the deal.

Speaker Bryan Brewer has worked with startups for the past twelve years, helping his clients raise more than $20 million in angel funding. He leads Funding Quest™ workshops and coaching groups in the Seattle area.
