“Success usually comes to those who are too busy to be looking for it.”
~ Henry David Thoreau
When developing your business plan, you need to do your research.
Investors reading your business plan want to see that you’ve thought long and hard about the potential promise — and pitfalls — of starting or expanding your company. Your dutiful due diligence must supply answers to these questions potential investors are asking themselves, and will ask you:
- Who are your competitors?
- Who are your customers?
- What companies have succeeded or failed in your sector?
- Why fund your company now, rather than a year from now? Or a year ago?
Here’s the blunt bottom line: If your business plan doesn’t include research that helps you present a clear, compelling case to potential investors, why should anyone trust you with their money?
