Long story short I just completed the business plan for my web based startup..., it is a very "different" idea, so you have to be somewhat open, but it has gotten some interest from investment communities even when it was just an idea on a few powerpoint slides.
I have no idea if my business plan is complete garbage or not, so I need some honest feedback with zero sugar coating please i.e. if it is awful and people would laugh in my face after reading it, then I need to know that :)
I have about $18,000 lumped into the project and it is about 90% complete, so I am very serious about this...
I tried to make the document as entertaining as possible, I have read a lot of other business plans, and simply put... they bored me to death with their tidal wave of charts and numbers... so I took a sort of non traditional approach when writing it... this could be a good thing... it could be a bad thing... that is why I need some help evaluating it. Also, I tried to remember my audience as well... I don't believe too many corporate suits would be sitting down to read this, although I could be wrong.
Anyways, if you have some good credibility, or have any type of experience in the tech/startup world, I would love for you to take a look at my BP. It is about 40 pages, but about 10 of those pages are pictures. It would probably take you around a half hour, maybe a little less to read.
Plus, once you provide some simple, quality feedback, there is a $10 eGiftcard in it for you to wherever you would like (as long as they offer the ability to purchase eGiftcards).
Thanks and hope to get some good responses!
