What is a Business Plan?

A business plan is a document that effectively communicates the business and its potential to those that matter. It could be an investor, a bank, a joint venture partner or even a high-profile techie you want to work for your company. It will contain the background work of the founding team, the business model, a brief analysis of the market and estimates of financial performance. Such a plan should be formulated even if you’re not looking to raise funds, as the questions it brings up tends to provide a roadmap for the business. It will be necessary as most venture capitalists, private equity firms or banks will ask for a business plan before even giving a second meeting. Vakilsearch has roped in some well-known professionals to prepare business plans with a clear and concise message.

Business Plan Procedure


Over the first five days, we will ask for in-depth information about your business and competitors. This will be the beginning of a broad vision for the company and an extension to the finer points of the business, including customer acquisition costs, breakdown of revenues, etc.


Once we have all the information we need, we will begin framing the business plan. Within 10 working days, we will be able to deliver an end-to-end business plan that will impress any investor or partner whom you show it.


Over the next four days, we will work on any iterations you may wish to make to the business plan.
