My recently written business plan secured $8 million investment. Looking for challenging work to show my expertise in the field of Business Consultancy, Business planning, strategies, & financial reporting . My primary objective is to give my employers the best work that they expect for their company. I have over 6 years of progressive experience in business plan development, business coaching, marketing, market research, branding, pricing and consulting management fields. Having written over 100 real world business plans, many of them are now successfully running businesses, I can proudly offer my services to the owners of start-up and in-operation companies who are desperately looking to get off the ground and to take their companies to the next level. The biggest challenges with the start-up companies are to seek and secure start-up capital and then get off the ground. My professionally written business plan addresses both these critical issues. My investment focused business plans are tailored to the specific needs of raising capital. In addition, these plans also provide a clear roadmap to the entrepreneurs which are backed by realistic and strong financial projection. Business plans are normally delivered in .pdf and .docx formats. I make sure that the final draft not only inspire you, but also inspire your investors and other stakeholders. Therefore, to make your business plan stand out, the writer should also focus on the designing to make it forceful and elegant. I design the business plan by coloring all heading, charts and tables identical to your company's logo. Apart from this, I also insert relevant pictures and SmartArt throughout the document to improve its readability and to add value to the business plan draft. At the end, It is important to highlight that I have more than 95% client satisfaction rate so far with my overall services and almost 100% with my provided business plans.

Business Plans + Decks + Research + Consulting

United States - Last active: 4 days ago - Tests: 1 - Portfolio: 11

I create plans and models for entrepreneurs and startups. My documents help them pitch to investors, banks, and potential business partners. Many of my clients are founders, organizations and companies seeking to create business and marketing plans, business models, full pitch decks or online presentations. Among my past clients I have financial institutions, food distribution companies, entertainment start-ups, media websites and green energy companies, plus many nonprofit organizations. My best clients are the ones with new and disruptive ideas. In my process I ask many questions, do a lot of research, propose new ideas, explore diverse channel of distribution, provide a lot of graphics, create models using a canvas business model system, run numbers and create financial projections. At the end, I do everything I can to create useful and powerful documents for my clients. "OFF-LINE" I have my own business consulting firm working from New York City, (EST) but available around the clock. I have an MPA from Cornell University (USA) and I speak English and Spanish. ----- MY PHILOSOPHY on writing business plan is simple: every business plan is unique and every client deserves a professional and timely service. I do not over promise, I do what I said I will do. Simple. Some business and marketing plans are designed to get a loan from a bank, others to get potential investors excited about a project. Most of the time is a tool to raise money, but all the time should be an instrument to guide your future. In my work I get inspiration from big angel and venture capitalist firms, such as the giant investor Sequoia Capital; that has invested in companies like Apple, Google, YouTube, PayPal, Instagram, Yahoo!, Atari, Kayak, Zappos, and LinkedIn. I always suggest my potential clients to read what they are asking from people that want to get funds from them: www.sequoiacap.com/ideas They are not asking for a 100-page business plan. They believe that the best founders are clear thinkers. ----- MY PROCESS is also simple. I start with your ideas and your initial data and work until you are completely satisfied. I want to invite you to see my process of writing business plans here: http://goo.gl/ugB0l1 Before you hire me I give you a very clear plan of what I will do for you, step by step, with a feasible timetable. Again, I do not over-promise, I do what I said I will do. By hours, this is a breakdown of my typical development process: 1) Business Consulting (2-6 hours) 2) Market (Research and Plan) (4 to 8 hours) 3) Financials (4 to 10 hours) - 3 to 5 years of Sales, Profit & Loss, Cash Flow and Balance Sheet forecasts. 4) Writing (8 to 16 hours) - following the format of California VC firm Sequoia Capital and adding charts, maps, graphics, etc., to clarify your business pitch. My tools are 1)Internet for research, 2) Skype for communication, 3) ASANA to organize my work, 4) Excel to plot all financial projections, 5) PowerPoint to design pitch decks, and 6) a few RedBulls to work overnight and on time. Everything will start with a Skype chat and we go from there. ----- TERMS I work around your budget. I know that startups are not cash cows. Because every plan is unique, I like to discuss final payment terms during the interview process. My original bid is a guide for the client, and is based, usually, on a week of work (about 40 hours). Depending on the nature, format and stage of your business project, my work could take about a week and in some cases several weeks. My hourly rate is $80, and usually will take me 20 to 40 hours of work to develop a comprehensive plan. If you hire me as a fixed rate contract, I operate on a 3-payment basis. The first 20% is due at project start, a second payment of 40% at an agreed upon middle milestone, and the final 40% upon completion of the project. ------- SAMPLES Looking for samples of my work? Here is a list of some of my past projects: IT service start-up in Germany, data center in Uganda, online food service platform in Brazil, crowdfunding site in California, niche social network in the UK, nonprofit in Mozambique, real estate fund in Taiwan, TV production company in Los Angeles, agro-business in Nigeria, entertainment company in Holland, publishing service in Spain, beverage company in the UK, entrepreneurial education center in Dubai, pharmaceutical start up in Lebanon, electric company in Saudi Arabia, and several iOS native app start-up in Australia, Ukraine, Puerto Rico and USA. Sample Business plan - http://goo.gl/4AUmUy Sample Pitch Deck - http://goo.gl/YcIMWa If you request a connection via Linkedin you can see past clients’ recommendations here: www.linkedin.com/in/josebello ----- FINAL NOTE: If you do not hire me, let me wish you good luck in your future business. Keep it up and dream big. Jose
