I write neat, clean and to-the-point busniess plans. If you are looking for a person with a thinking head on, with creativity and deep understanding of entrepreneurship (being an entrepreneur himself), then I am your guy. I am an entrepreneur and business strategy / business development consultant, specialising in eCommerce, Software and IT (especially for start-ups and SMEs- but have worked with large corporations also). Ranked in top 10% on oDesk for Business Plans and Business Strategy, and with my extensive background in Engineering, Computer Sciences and Business (2 Bachelors and 1 Master’s degree), an MBA with Specialization in Leadership Studies, Fellowship of Saltire Foundation with advanced courses in Entrepreneurship, Leadership, Sales and Marketing from Babson College (rated #1 for Entrepreneurship studies), I have the necessary background to understand your business and help you in coming up with marketing and technology solutions for your business needs. Being an entrepreneur myself who has started multiple start-ups and brought innovations to the market, I can understand and help you with the business plan and business processes to raise funding, convince key stake holders or partners, and make your business a success story. I am very good in telling a compelling story (afterall that is what a business plan must do!) and substantiating and backing up the story with financial modelling / projections and creating great to-the-point presentations (I have a lot of experience in MS Excel and MS PowerPoint/Prezi). With Strategic insight and keen business acumen, Winner of the National Business Plan Competition (Scotland), I have developed my own templates and models for financial projections that allows you to try out different scenarios (different rates of growth, change costs and sales assumptions to test the viability and robustness of your business model). It empowers you to continue making changes on your own. Over the last 10 years, I have been involved with and developed a wide range of technology based businesses, especially in the Information Technology area, developing web and mobile based solutions and applications. These solutions have involved ASP.Net, HTML, SQL Server, PHP and MySQL, as well as iPhone apps on the App Store. I have developed expertise in business development for start up companies and small businesses bringing new ideas to market as well as entrepreneurial departments / divisions of corporations looking for changing their business processes to become more efficient and productive. My core competency is in complete end-end management of a new business idea's design, development, implementation and bringing it to fruition. I am seeking opportunities to build business from the ground up for you. I am (re-assuringly) expensive, because quality comes at a price (however, since I work fast, the overall cost may be quite economical). When you are making a decision on engagement of a business plan writer and strategic advisor, think about this: 'Can you afford your business plan not to be absolutely top notch, the best it could be? If the funding you are seeking is quite important, hiring the best person and getting the best professionally written business plan might make the difference between getting it or not getting it, or getting the deal at much better terms!!! Let's talk! .
