Provide Conclusive and Compelling
Evidence

  target “theater”, not just your “customer”

• You understand the value proposition

• You have the TEAM to execute the plan
   – Competencies
   – Experience

Face The Challenges, Don’t Try To Hide
Them Or Hide From Them


• Clearly identify potential risks and present associated
  mitigation strategies

• If you don’t have competitors do you have a market?

• If there’s a “Sweet Spot” you need to hit it




                                                 #GAcomp
Takeaways

Editor's Notes

  1. You might produce different business plans from your core material depending on the targeted reader. For Example, you might have a different approach for an equity investor then you would for a standard lender. Understand that both have their own exit strategies.Grow America has identified their critical factors for this competition which include the creation of jobs in Utah and revenue generation. They have also identified required inputs by category and suggested judging criteria.Don’t limit the identification of “investor” to financial investor. Some investors provide time, knowledge, connections or other valuable contributions to your initiative. Focus in on what is important to them but don’t exclude what’s important to you.
  2. You must fully understand your Buyer, User, Influencer, Beneficiary and other critical players.Their demographics, psychographics, habitsWhy they are your ideal audience and why you are their ideal “solution” providerThe competitive playing field as well as alternative practices that impact the opportunityCurrent practice, trendsYou may have the best product and a large market but if you can’t produce the best team you risk being passed over. Far too many entrepreneurs fail to adequately identify, qualify and secure the right people FOR THE JOB. Far too many put themselves in a position that they are not qualified to hold!

  4. If you don’t believe you have a real winner, why are you here?The assumption will be “if it seems to good to be true, …”. Show evidence that it’s too good to pass up!When you do not have all of the facts you might have to present assumptions. Be prepared to discuss the rationale behind them and how you will validate them.
