          Welcome Ulises

           

          The best presentation is a business plan.

           

          You can get great info online, or at the library.

           

          Good luck, LUCKIEST

            Ulises,

             

            When I am considering a business proposition for investment, I often times rely on reviewing the business plan, marketing plan, and the personal resume of the entrepreneur. The reason that I review the personal resume is because I want to see their work experience and educational background. I have had a lot of investment opportunities cross my desk where the business plan and marketing plan looked great, but the individual never had 1 day of experience in the business they were looking to start. That is a huge concern to an investor. I also will allow for a small presentation meeting, where usually the entrepreneur puts together a powerpoint presentation outlining their vision and how they will make it work with my investment dollars.

             

            I hope this information helps you in preparing yourself for potential investors.

             

            Regards,

                Thank you so much.

                 

                This give me an idea of what investor are looking for.

                 

                I will do my homework on the business plan right away.

                As far as everything else, its just plug and play.

                I have a business management degree Plus two years of experience.

                Enough to make me not want to wait any longer. The more I wait, the more money I lose.

                 

                Thank a lot to everyone.

                What sort of investment are you looking for? Debt or equity based investment? Will your business have inventory or other forms of collatoral? I have only ever had experience with equity based investments but would be happy to provide any feedback I can if you are willing to provide a few more details.

                 

                All the best!
