To consider any invitation to invest, we require a clear, succint business plan that outlines the opportunity and the potential of the investment. What's important to us is the quality of an idea, the nature of the oportunity, and the commitment management makes to achieving ambitious and attainable goals.
While business plans come in many varieties, we look for several key elements when we evaluate a business plan.
