1 Your main task is to develop a business plan (word document) in preparation to secure funding from an investor. Your business plan will be based on your micro business idea, offering products or services in existing or potential new markets. Your business plan will consist of a company overview, competitive and market analysis, business and marketing strategy, operating plan, and financial analysis, (1700 words). (LO1 & 2)
2 Along with completing your business plan, you will prepare a ten-minute presentation (five PowerPoint slides max) to pitch your idea in front of a potential investor. You will try to secure funding for your micro business idea. The investor will critically analyse your micro business idea, looking at the actual business idea, business strategy, competitor analysis, key projected financials and how much investment is required and for what purpose. After your completed presentation, your five PowerPoint slides will then be attached in your business plan, within the Appendix section, (500 words). (LO3)
3 After your presentation pitch, you will receive feedback from the investor regarding your business idea and how to improve your business plan. Based on the feedback, you will be required, within your business plan, to make recommendations that set out how you will improve your business idea in order to secure funding. (300 words). (LO4)
YOU MUST ATTACH THE COMPLETED PRESENTATION FEEDBACK FORM AS AN APPENDEX IN YOUR SUMMATIVE.
You must demonstrate evidence of wider research, real world application and reading of core textbooks, learning materials on Moodle and academic scholarly work through Harvard referencing.
