we do not explicitly develop business plans because that would
conflict with our independent assessment. We are not unscrupulous
"investment bankers" that require a $15,000 retainer
to develop business plans before we consider getting you funded.
However, we do refer entrepreneurs to business plan professionals,
and provide analysis, tune-ups and consulting engagements. Given
our established network of venture capital firms and investors,
our biggest challenge continues to be to find great companies,
so we want to receive great business plans!
