2014 Summer Review of Business Plan Writers and Consultants

This post mainly focuses on firms that can develop and write a business plan.  This post is meant as a directory of a few business plan writing firms that can finish the job.  In 2011 we reviewed a few business plan writers and this list will include them as well as some new Business Plan Writers we have found.  Of course we are a bit bias considering we write and develop business plans, research reports and marketing plans...but nevertheless;

NicholasCoriano.com: Nicholas Coriano is the founder of several businesses and online websites and has written business plans professionally since 2010.  He has a degree in Business Finance and a Law Degree as well as experience on Wall Street and runs several successful businesses.  He offers several business plan solutions as well as financial forecasting, business formation and investor leads.  He is located in NY/CT

Cayenne Consulting: Cayenne Consulting expanded to the entrepreneurial hub of "Silicon Alley" in 2005. The founder, Akira Hirai, has strong ties to the area - after graduating from Harvard College in 1989, he lived in Manhattan for 10 years before moving west during the Dot Com era.  Their New York business plan consultants have worked with scores of startups and emerging ventures, and have deep experience in a wide range of industries including software/Internet/mobile/social, financial services, medical devices, apparel & jewelry, alternative energy and clean tech, telecommunications, restaurants and bars, real estate, and more.  The team is located throughout the USA

GrowThink: Started in 1999, Grow Think Business Plans has created over 3,000 business plans and also creates a pathway to financing your business.  As of recently, Grow Think has expanded their team of professionals and has over 40 members to choose from for writing your business plan.  The team is headquartered in Los Angeles, CA and Mount Kisco, NY

Bplans.com: Not really a business plan writing service, but software for you to create and write your own business plan.  Many business plan writers use this software to format and layout their business plans.

MasterPlans.com: MasterPlans claim is to be "The business plan experts" and separates your business plan development among their team.  Their business plan writing service includes financial modeling and research as well as formatting.  The team is headquartered in Portland, OR

PlanitBusiness.com: The website has been in business since 1996 and claims to provide the link to Investor Funding.  The team has an Ivy League MBA at the helm and has written business plans for celebrities and athletes.  The team is headquartered in Dallas, TX

Butler Consultants: Butler Consultants writes three main levels of business plans: Level 2, Level 3, and Specialty Plans. Our Level 2 Plan is designed for Small Business Association (SBA), Bank, or Grant funding. The Level 3 Plan is designed to attract Angel Investors, Private Investors, or Venture Capitalists. Our Specialty Plans meet additional needs that may not be covered in the Level 2 and Level 3 business plans. All business plans include our custom financial statements and invaluable market research. Butler Consultants provides attentive, personalized service while consulting with you to build a professional plan that fits your unique needs.  The team is located in Plano, TX

MicroCapCompany.com: We write and research business plans, research reports and case studies for small and large companies.  Are focus is on public companies trading over the counter and penny stock companies looking for solid investor presentations and business plans that can be formatted as power points and elevator pitches.  The team is headquartered in Westchester, NY

This list is not meant to be a recommendation to use any services listed above, but as a lead introduction to several business plan writing services.  There are plenty of others online and offline.  When developing a business plan, make sure you know what you are trying to accomplish, for example are you looking for:

  • an "elevator pitch" - a three minute summary of the business plan's executive summary. This is often used as a teaser to awaken the interest of potential funders, customers, or strategic partners.
  • an oral presentation - a hopefully entertaining slide show and oral narrative that is meant to trigger discussion and interest potential investors in reading the written presentation. The content of the presentation is usually limited to the executive summary and a few key graphs showing financial trends and key decision making benchmarks. If a new product is being proposed and time permits, a demonstration of the product may also be included.
  • a written presentation for external stakeholders - a detailed, well written, and pleasingly formatted plan targeted at external stakeholders.
  • an internal operational plan - a detailed plan describing planning details that are needed by management but may not be of interest to external stakeholders. Such plans have a somewhat higher degree of candor and informality than the version targeted at external stakeholders. 
All of these items listed above can be considered a business plan, but will end up being formatted differently.  Some services are all encompassing, leaving you with all of the above, and some will target their report (and pricing) to exactly what you need.  Hope this was helpful, any comments, suggestions or questions, just leave a short message in the comment area below:
