If you want a business plan drafted but want to accomplish this on your own, look no further. Dagmar Breiling has put together a course to help guide you through drafting your own business plan and applying for funding. This course is for you if:
- You want to draft your own business plan.
- You have enough time.
You are tight on budget.
This course will give you our own templates for the written part of your business plan and the financials. In this 9-module course, you will be guided through the whole process of developing your business plan and financials to help ensure you will be accepted by the relevant funding institution. Here is a breakdown of each module in the course:
In this module you will gain insight into how to expertly determine and pitch your products or services, your suppliers and your cost prices.
Here, you will learn about your market, your ideal client, your competitors, how to find your customers, and how to incorporate these things into your business plan correctly.
Here, we look at your sales and marketing strategies, your low cost and no cost marketing strategy, your online and offline marketing strategies, your pricing structure, your distribution channel, your unique selling point and how to position yourself in the market.
This module takes a look at your management and your team efficiency, as well as how to set up your administration.
In this module, we dedicate time and concentration to picking your best company name and registering your company through the right channels.
The focus here is on financial models, including the excel template with one page where you will insert all the numbers developed throughout this course. This template includes all the relevant pages so that you can successfully apply for finance or raise equity funding. Together, this module will help you draft your cash flow statement, income statements for five years, balance sheet for five years, and the monthly amortisation schedule for five years.
In this module, we tackle how much capital you will need for your business venture. This will include deciding what really needs funding and what does not.
This module is dedicated to helping you draft your executive summary. This is the summary of your whole business venture and is the first thing any financier will read in your business plan. It is essential that this gives them the necessary information they need and grabs their attention.
After all this hard work, you can now add all the information into the word template provided.
You can join the Get Funded Webinar hosted by Dagmar Breiling, our international Funding Strategist. In this webinar, she will explain what you need to have in place to be able to apply for funding with government institutions, commercial banks and development funds.
