I do have a powerpoint presentation but it could use some fine tuning to really tighten it up. I also have a fully built out business plan and financial plan projecting 5 years of operation and growth. Like writing a novel I`m experiencing writers block on how to end the business plan and that involves exit strategy for most involved.
I have my next advisory board meeting on Monday the 14th where we will be looking very closely at the financials and the investor presentation. I have a really strong board with a former GE exec, a COO of a prominent internet retailer, two marketing people, a wholesale beer and wine distribution specialist and my accountant. They`ve been really great to work with and very helpful but they all have a different idea about how you handle liquidity events and exit strategy at the proposal stage.
I don`t want to miss the forest for the trees with too much focus on exit strategy because you`re right, the important thing is to be prepared and to have access to potential investors. But at the same time, I need to be able to explain how they will make money from entrusting Brewtopia Beer Market with their money.
