Some thoughts on funding proposals
We hope that you will take into account the guidance we are able to provide both here and with the first meeting. If you can your chance of success is improved.
|If you are member of Business Club International you will find a range of
information and help available to you, from model business plans to the chance
to try out putting forward proposals at presentations. This page is not really
meant for you, but for those who are trying to do this in the dark. You may
however like to look over the information provided. If not go to the link at
the bottom of the page.
What we want to explore here is what is well received and what is not, as it may help you to consider the design of proposals being formulated.
Lets for simplicity here refer to Business Angels and venture capitalists, as BA's to reduce the amount of text. The following is not a complete list but a good start.
BA's do not like
BA's do like
While it is not essential to meet all the likes and avoid all the dislikes, the number of BA's that are interested is reduced if you do not.
Attending some of the ABAN Plus Club events will also help you to better understand what other members like and dislike, as well as trying out some presentations at special club meetings for this, allowing you to smooth out problems or know objections that you may need to work out answers for.

Think about a project being put to you, you would expect 2+2=4 unless there was a good explanation why this was not the case. Remember any proposal has more chance of succeeding if everyone understands it and has no concerns.
