Getting a business plan written – expenses, contents and benefits
If you have your business plan prepared by an expert, then you will get a bankable document with everything that bankers and investors need for their decision. With a professional business plan and a confident appearance, you will most likely receive your financing.
Concise and interesting presentation of your company
Many business plans are not well crafted. They are written in a too technical and too complicated jargon, sometimes redundant and unclear, and often simply boring. Such business plans – even if the business idea is good – provide a strong incentive for the banker or investor to quit reading.
From me you will receive a business plan that has been revised several times and is oriented towards the needs of the reader: concise, clear and understandable and written in an interesting way.
An integrated cash flow model for sustainable success
When your banker asks you “What happens if the prices you’re getting are 5% lower and your customers take 20 days longer to pay their bills – will you still have enough cash flow to pay interest and repayments on our loan?”
Then you need a financial planning tool that gives you a robust answer to that question.
You will receive from me an integrated financial plan that provides answers to such questions, from sales and costs in the P&L to investments, current assets and sources of financing in the balance sheet to the resulting cash flow.
Financial planning is based on an Excel model; from this you can extract important information. It shows you which variables of your business model have the greatest impact on your profit.
This gives you hints as to which variables you might need to analyze in more depth. And you get scenario analyses that show you how your business will develop in a negative scenario and in a positive scenario.
Many founders who give me a draft of their business plan write extensively about the product and the technology and their own qualifications. The parts that most often get neglected are market analysis, distribution channels and your approach to winning customers.
When I write your business plan, you will get a market analysis that is as comprehensive as necessary and as lean as possible to suit your needs.
Bankers not only expect you to present coherent budget figures. Investors also expect you to explain what sales and marketing measures you intend to implement in order to achieve these figures. Your business success depends heavily on the fact that the planned sales actually materialize. And your actions in sales and marketing are key to that.
Together with you, we will develop an actionable set of measures.
What is the collaboration process when you get your business plan done?
Our cooperation follows these 12 steps:
We have a telephone conversation and you explain your project to me.
I estimate the scope of the project and you receive a quote from me.
We meet for an online kick-off meeting to get to know each other personally.
You mail me the information that is already available.
I create, or review, the financial planning numbers.
We exchange ideas about the assumptions, the parameters, the conclusions, etc.
The final financial plan shows the capital requirements for your project.
I work out the chapters of the written part of the business plan.
You will receive the new versions for proofreading.
We finalize the business plan by incorporating your change requests.
You receive the finished business plan as a PDF file.
We select suitable banks and investors and send the business plan, if desired.
I am very satisfied with Mr Giebitz's work. Mr. Giebitz was able to identify with the facts after only a few minutes and was a very helpful partner in developing my business plan. Thanks to the very professional work, I was able to start my own recruitment consultancy - thank you very much!

Mr Giebitz managed in a short time and with great commitment to translate our technical complexities into a compelling business plan. His advice on new growth opportunities was particularly valuable; this helped us to move our company significantly faster and further forward. I can unreservedly recommend the very good work of Mr Giebitz!

Hair salon chain
I wanted to acquire a chain of hairdressing salons and asked Mr. Giebitz to determine the value of the company and to find arguments for a low purchase price. He did both very well and very quickly. I recommend Mr Giebitz with full conviction.
