who's the business plan for??

a BP is primarily for you to check how well you are doing compared to the expected development of your company.

then if you need additional capital the BP has to be written in a different way as investor will not focus at the same things you would.

hope you are familiar with capital budgeting.
the use of Monte Carlo to simulate the financial outcome of your venture is a pretty neat thing to do :)

Hi Ksl, could you elaborate a bit more please?

if you are referring to the link to my blog: everything is free there and i am not a consultant.

think that knowing a bit on NPV, IRR, MIRR, monte carlo... helps, so this is why i have set up the blog... (and also it prevents me from forgetting stuff)


now: most of the ideas people have are not new. the marketing plan is usually pre-existing too. what potential investors (or a bank in case of a loan) would focus on is: capital budgeting / financial forecasts.

and this is why i use monte carlo simulations... :)

I just read something very interesting at Businessweek.com on writing business plans.

Called "How to Write a Winning Business Plan". Might be worth a read.
Here's the link to the article.
