Q: Can you guarantee our plan will raise capital?

A: No, there is so many factors to this, and if somebody ever makes that guarantee, I would suggest looking for somebody else to assist you. A good plan is essential, but a plan alone will not get funded. Although we will do our best to help you prepare, we have no control over how well you present yourselves to investors, or how well you answer their questions. We can offer to coach you prior to the day, but remember, it’s your business and you must close the deal.

Q: Why should I hire a consultant to write my resume instead of doing it myself?

A: Do you know that when applying to a large company, your résumé will be scanned by a computer system for keywords, and if you don’t have the relevant keywords your résumé may not be seen by a human? This is where we can help. We know the industry specific keywords that employers are looking for. Did you know you only have a few second to grab the readers attention? We know how to get the attention of the HR Managers, as we know what they are looking for. We have years of experience, trust in us, to help you.

Q: Why should I hire a consultant to write our business plan instead of writing it ourselves?

A: An investor-grade business plan including financial forecast and investor presentation can take hundreds of hours to produce. This is the time you should probably be spending building your team, product, distribution channels, and customer base. In addition to our expertise in preparing these materials, we offer independent, third-party insights into your business, and may raise questions that you might not have thought to ask.

Q: Can you write my document any faster?

A: This may be possible, but we may need to charge a “rush” fee. We typically work on multiple projects at any point in time, and rush projects can strain our schedules or inconvenience other clients.

Q: Will you agree with everything I say?

A: Probably not. If you hire us, then you will get our honest advice, our job is to help you avoid mistakes, challenge your ideas and assumptions.

Q: How do you price your services?

A: In general, we charge a pre-determined fixed fee. This would be discussed and agreed upon before any work takes place.

Q: Will you sign a non-disclosure agreement?

A: We would prefer to use a Mutual NDA so that both parties are fully protected.
