Date: Thursday, 08 March 2018


Time: 5:00pm

B&F Business Plans would like to invite you to join us for a live discussion about getting your tech start-up ready with a successful business plan.

In this 30 minute webinar Christie Osarenren, Head of Strategy at B&F Services and Lode Groosman, Co-Founder, Threedium will share their knowledge regarding business planning and the essential preparations for your tech start-up being investment ready.
 
Tech startups are blossoming in every corner of the globe and remarkably, a new startup is birthed in London every day, according to Tech City UK. A business plan is an essential road map for the success of any business endeavour, but few small businesses ever complete a plan for many reasons and some simply dismiss its purpose.

We’ll discuss the importance of a business plan, how to tailor it to investors with an appetite for technology, how to ensure your message is clear and how B&F Services works with clients to develop comprehensive business plans for tech founders to obtain their target investment.

With a strong presence in the City over the last 12 years, B&F have successfully worked with over 3,200 businesses to date. Our business plans have been instrumental in helping 96% of businesses with raising capital from venture stage to scale-up. As businesses navigate the fundraising terrain the last 12 months have seen an increased demand on our business plan writing services. We provide the key assistance and support for very small start-ups as well as medium-sized organisations preparing for equity funding. We would like to share our experience with everyone looking to take this route to provide clarity on the process.
