A business plan serves several critical functions. For companies at their earliest stages, it focuses an action plan that turns vision into reality. For companies already in business, it focuses them on the fastest and most direct route to growth and/or profitability. And for a company at any stage, a polished business plan is critical for raising capital. Without a top-notch, compelling business plan, no matter how good or unique your ideas and how capable your execution, your business will wilt if your vision, coupled with a coherent strategy, cannot be communicated to others in a clear, compelling manner. We offer business plans that are polished, compelling, custom-built and designed to accomplish each goal of your specific company with its specific needs.
The end result of our business planning work is a business plan, but the real benefit of using our services is the process. Our business plan creation process is designed to optimize product and market positioning and to generate clear workplan to achieve it.. Creating a clear focus at the inception of a business reduces money spent, as well as frustration, at later points. We begin by extensive consultation with you and your partners, and by reviewing any material you have already prepared. We then research the industry and consult with you again. We continue frequent consulting as we draft each plan. Our business plans are therefore individually created in close collaboration with our clients and tailored to your business.
We do not take another plan off the shelf and change the names. We use our consultation and research to provide extensive analysis of your business, refinements to your strategy, appropriate timelines, capital needs and uses, and analysis of the management team and employee needs.
Pitch decks and business plans are two different things. They have a lot of crossover factors. Yet, one is for start-ups, specifically for getting funding from angels and VCs. The other is used more for internal organizational purposes or for raising capital. We help start-ups to assemble pitch-decks that addresses investors’ wills to see functional prototypes, customers’ use, scalability and growth path.
In contrast with old school business plans we put together the parts that make a convincing deck-pitch:
The need to cope with a change – external or internal – is not a one-time instance nor a “black swan”, it’s actually intensifying, in today’s business environment—in frequency and importance. The ability to continuously change, at speed and at scale, is now essential to survive. Our Change Management Toolkit combines our deep expertise with state-of-the-art tools that have just come out of the academy to provide you with everything you need to master change—not just once, but continuously. This Toolkit will completely change the way you face change, choose a course of action and implement it. Our simple yet powerful Change Management Toolkit platform enables every member of your team (executives, board members, investors, consultants) to take an active part in the (necessary) change initiatives you need to carry out.
Change Management Toolkit is running on a cloud collaborative platform. It is easy to use, flexible, secure and comprehensive. It provides your management team the full range of tools to effectively cope with change in structured framework:
This key enablement solution helps organizations adopt the skills and ways of working needed to carry out their coping-with-change strategies. The program offers end-to-end training as well as learning modules on specific change management topics and tools. Offerings are tailored to a client’s needs and are delivered through hands-on exercises, led by GilboaTech’s consulting experts in either classic, hybrid or online workshops. Our program consists of three consecutive sessions in which the participants are introduced to our Pivoting ToolKit platform, the array of tools it consists of together with appropriate techniques for performance coping with change and change management.
The philosophy of the programme is that coping-with-change is a “doing subject” and a “real life subject”. Hence each topic will be supported by real world examples and participants will not be passive observers but instead will be hands-on, undertaking many exercises at class and at home in between sessions. Participants will share with class their exercises and case study analysis, initiate brainstorming and strategies discussions.
Financial modeling creates a clear vision of your business’s financial path. With that vision, you can value your business, plan your future, more easily obtain outside investment, and react to the ever-changing environment of every business. In collaboration with you, we execute industry-specific, powerful, flexible and clear financial models.
The financial model shows your capital needs, for your benefit, and the return on investment, for the investor’s benefit. At the same time, it provides rigorous analytical insight into the feasibility and profit potential of the current business or any new business (or product) direction, adding clarity to your thoughts before you actually enter the business.
WHAT DOES A FINANCIAL MODEL CONTAIN: A financial model usually includes an income statement and cash flow statement, combined with company-specific analysis and statements. A balance sheet is added, if it is required. We work with you to determine growth rates, pricing, market reach, cash needs, operating costs, cost of goods sold, and other financial forecast and cash need items, all combining our client’s knowledge with our industry-specific research and experience. A complete financial model presents this data, and subsets of it, both in detailed chart and summary graphic form. Both types of presentation are necessary, depending on the target audience.
FINANCIAL MODEL FLEXIBILITY: The completed financial model is not static; it is a tool that is continuously useful to our clients. Our clients can, without our further assistance, adjust assumptions, modify data inputs, and, most important of all from the investor perspective, run scenarios such as best- and worst-case, rapid growth, and so forth.
