Part 2 Tasks: (Objectives from Week 5)
Your plan is finished, but your job is not done. You still need to sell the plan to investors.
Your assignment is to use the content of your business plan to develop a PowerPoint presentation that can be used to attract investors, venture capitalists, and angel investors. Your presentation should take no longer than 10 minutes, and it should include no more than 12 slides of content. How you format the presentation is up to you. There is no right way to pitch to investors, but there are plenty of suggestions in your textbooks and other resources. Choose a format that works for your venture. Deliver and record a 10-minute presentation in which you pitch your venture for review by a panel of peers and the professor.
All of the required sections should be included in your completed plan (not necessarily in the following order):
- Mission Statement
- Vision Statement
- Market Opportunity
- Competitive Environment
- Operating Plan
- Legal Structure
- Financial Documents: Balance Sheet, Income Statement, Cash Flow Statement
- Marketing Mix
- Digital Marketing Plan
- Social Media Strategy
- Management Team and Organization Chart
- Statement of Social Entrepreneurship
- Board of Advisors and Other Mentors
- Company Story
- Executive Summary
The plan should be well-written, concise, and organized. Visual aids should be clearly labeled, clean, and complete.
All research material should be included in an index or cited per APA citation guidelines.
