Cleveland Business Planning Services

Our business plan writers provide a full-range of services to help you start or grow your business.

Business Plans and Feasibility

We at Blue Horizon pride ourselves on providing personalized service that is tailored to each customer’s needs. If you are comfortable with creating your own business plan, our Business Plan Scorecard program allows you to send it to our seasoned experts, who will carefully review each section and tell you its strengths and weaknesses. When your plan is ready to go, we offer books, DVDs, and other tools to help you get set up and running, and find sources for funding.

If you would rather let us handle the details, we offer business plan writing services targeted to the size of your business and the amount of funding you hope to raise. The Summary Business Plan package is ideal for smaller businesses seeking less than $250,000 in funding, while the Full VC Quality Business Plan provides all of the details needed to convince angel and venture capitalist investors to give a larger business the funding it requires.

As the Cleveland market is currently in a growth phase, knowing exactly when and how to launch a new business can be tricky. Before investing your time and money in a start-up venture, consider allowing us to perform a Feasibility Study. Your local Cleveland consultant’s expertise will help you understand the current market factors, future projects already in the works, and the competitive landscape you will face. If you decide to go ahead with your business, we will credit the fees you paid for the Feasibility Study toward one of our business plan packages.

Start-Up Services

Your business plan is a core component in starting your new business, but it is not enough by itself. You must also attend to a seemingly endless list of decisions and filing obligations to launch a new business. We are here to help.

If you are in a hurry to open, our Quick Launch package includes searching for the availability of your business name, filing your articles of incorporation, and setting up your federal tax ID number, as well as free registered agent services for one year. We will also design and launch a basic website, set up your corporate bank account and integrate it with QuickBooks, and set up your merchant account. The Quick Launch package has a two week guarantee.

For the ultimate service, choose our Done For You Business Creation package. This package allows you to retain control while we put our years of experience into giving your business the best possible chance for success. Your local Cleveland consultant is an expert in all the federal, state, and local regulations, as well as the techniques that will position your company as a frontrunner in your industry. With this option, we will be by your side through every aspect of the first year of your company’s life. Your local expert will even serve as CEO, CFO, or COO for that year, allowing you to attend to the business of running your company rather than getting lost in the decision-making process.

Frequently Asked Questions

Why should I hire a consultant?
Theoretically, anyone could write a business plan, search for funding, and launch a start-up company. However, the reality is that fewer than 1% of business plans are ever funded, and the vast majority of start-ups fail. The reasons for this generally fall into two categories: lack of capital and lack of experience.

A business plan consultant, like an attorney or an accountant, is a subject matter expert. Allowing the consultant to take the reins in the areas that he or she knows best leaves you free to do what you do best. Together, you give your company the best opportunity to succeed.

Why should I hire you?
We have proven experience in building successful companies both in Cleveland and across the United States. Your local consultant is an expert in your specific market, and will also draw on the wealth of experience accumulated by Blue Horizon Venture Consulting since 1999. We have helped our clients raise more than $100 million in venture capital across a vast array of industries. We know what investors want and how to ensure that you provide it to them.

Who founded Blue Horizon?
Our founder, Todd Smith, remains the backbone of our company. He holds both an MBA and a Master’s in International Management, and has worked for such corporations as IBM and Blue Cross and Blue Shield of Florida. His consulting experience includes both start-ups and new growth in Fortune 500 companies, and he is passionate about helping start-ups find the funding they need for success.
