Final Business Plan Presentation
Business plans provide the information funding sources need to determine whether or not they will invest in your business. For your final assignment, you will prepare a slide presentation with speaker’s notes such as you would use if presenting in person to the funding decision maker you identified in your Obtaining Start-Up Funds assignment. In your presentation, you will need to convince your funding source to provide the funds that your business needs. Your presentation will expand on the outline you created in the Week 4 homework, incorporate the feedback from each of the previous assignments, and include an executive summary, an exit strategy, and speaker notes, plus title and sources slides.
Address the following in your presentation:
Include speaker notes to accompany each slide that emphasize and expand on the key points to the stakeholders. Please be clear and thorough as if you were presenting to the investor in person.
Create a one- or two-slide executive summary that is an at-a-glance overview of your business plan as a whole. It should touch on your company profile and goals, as well as each of the heading topics in your outline, including the business model, target market, and funding.
Tip: Create your executive summary after you finish building the presentation.
Create one- or two-slides that expand on each of the topic headings that you provided in your outline from the Week 4 homework activity, Business Plan Outline.
For the Business Model slide, incorporate the feedback you received from the assignment, Business Models, to describe your selected business model, and explain why you chose it.
For the Target Market Segment slide, incorporate the feedback you received from the assignment, Target Market Segment, to describe your selected primary and secondary target markets, and explain why you chose them.
For the Start-Up Funds slide, incorporate the feedback you received from the assignment, Obtaining Start-Up Funds, to identify your funding sources, why you chose them, and the sources you decided not to pursue and why.
Create a one-slide Exit Strategy slide where you discuss two key factors you would consider when planning an exit strategy. Provide an explanation to support your reasoning.
