According to the book “The ABC s of Writing Winning Business Plans: How to Prepare a Business Plan That Others Will Want to Read -- and Invest In” http://www.amazon.com/exec/obidos/ASIN/0446694150/powerhomebizguid by Garrett Sutton, below are some tips to make a winning business plan that can get funding: - Money follows management. Investors look first at the people involved in the company. If you are just starting out and don’t have relevant experience, investors expect to see that you have an experienced team of advisors and employees helping you in the business. - Make sure you “sell” the one reason your business will become profitable. - State clearly the strategies you will employ to get the word out about your business. Your business plan must show how you will leverage the Internet, public relations, viral marketing, and other strategies to attract customers. - Present realistic estimates of the time, energy and costs of building a successful business. Do not underestimate or overestimate revenues. While investors know your numbers are simply guesses, they want to see that your numbers are within the “range of reality.” Be careful of your financial statements: this is one area where you can easily lose credibility if presented poorly. - Benchmark similar companies to show that you’ve done your homework and researched the market. - Your Executive Summary is your calling card. If it is not a winner, investors may not even read your entire plan. Emphasize your own as well as your team’s track record in the Executive Summary. - Before sending your business plan to lenders and investors, send it out first to a few in order to get feedback. You’d want to correct your plan if someone tells you that you’re way off mark, rather than have a potential investor tell it to you and lose the chance to get the funding you need.

A business plan is a formal statement of business goals , reasons they are attainable, and plans for reaching them. It may also contain background information about the organization or team attempting to reach those goals.

Business plans may target changes in perception and branding by the customer , client, taxpayer , or larger community. When the existing business is to assume a major change or when planning a new venture, a 3 to 5 year business plan is required, since investors will look for their investment return in that timeframe.

I know how to fund the Republican healthcare plan - Let Jane Sanders arrange the funding

It was never broken until you began cutting funding to vital programs. It must really get to you that a black man out did your stupid plan!

Also interesting the author"s plan for urban independence includes increasing federal funding to cities. ?

So what was the long term plan or is, in this case? State funding? Because we know they are all broke. Not seeing a silver lining here.

Maybe they will vote to keep funding it to keep people from your new plan.
