Every other reason for not buying....

❌ “But you can’t replace hiring a business plan writer to do this”

✅ This template costs $49 not $2,000. Also, you have more control over the writing process. The template is very specific so you will have relevant info in Industry Analysis, Financial Model and other sections. So, it will help you write the business plan at a fraction of the time and cost of the writer as the writer has to start from scratch.

❌ “I feel like just browsing online and using the free templates available online.

✅ Sure, if you wish to spend 4 weeks instead of 2 days to write a plan then please go ahead. Our research team found that free resources are very generic and does not offer fill-up and print facility. Also, you won’t get the specialized financial model from the free resources.

❌ But wouldn’t everyone’s content look the same?

✅ Nope. Our customers are smart and customize by adding their own images, logo, company description, etc.

❌ “But can you garuntee that I will get a bank loan using this?

✅ No, I cannot garuntee anything for $49. The purpose of this template is to make it easier and less time consuming for you to write a business plan.

Who developed this template?

Our templates are developed by CPAs, CFAs and Ex- consultants of BCG, Mckinsey, PwC and KMPG. Elma Steven is the Head of our Quality Control.

Can I validate my the prospect of my MVP using this?

Yes. The financial model will help you plug in price, unit cost, payables and other assumptions which will allow you to project the revenue, profit and other KPIs.
