EXCEED INVESTOR EXPECTATIONS
Your business plan is a reflection of you and your business. When you're competing with thousands of other investment opportunities you need a business plan that stands out.

TELL A COMPELLING INVESTMENT STORY
A good business plan is more than just a collection of numbers or a list or risks. It should tell a compelling investment story about your business - weaving this narrative is our strength.

FREE UP YOUR TIME
Writing a business plan is time consuming. Our proven process dramatically reduces the amount of time you, or your team, will need to spend on your business plan.

WHY HIRE THE SUMMERHILL GROUP?

Market leading experience & expertise.

We have delivered hundreds of business plan projects and hundreds of millions in funding. Our clients are typically raising from angel investors, venture capital, private equity, crowd funding, or via corporate venturing. 

We are sector agnostic, but a large proportion of our clients come from tech (FinTech/PaaS, SaaS), property, hospitality (restaurants, leisure, hotels) and professional services.

Examples of recent projects include:

BUSINESS PLAN WRITING

Transforming fundraising for a SaaS platform.

Challenge:

  • We were approached by a SaaS platform for investment banks that, despite initial interest from investors, was struggling to close. 

Outcome:

  • We reviewed their pitch material and built a new business plan with a compelling narrative and strong visuals. 

  • The new approach transformed the funding round, which closed significantly oversubscribed. 

BUSINESS PLAN WRITING

Helping a robo-advisor raise debt + equity finance

Challenge:

  • We helped an existing mortgage advisory firm move into the robo-advisory space.

Outcome:

  • We produced their business plan and pitch deck material specifically focusing on growth potential and the existing success of their current business model.

  • They successfully raised a debt/equity round via corporate venturing in 2018.

  • We are currently working with them to build a new business plan as the business enters a growth phase, enabling them to raise even more capital.

INVESTMENT READINESS

Preparing an
e-commerce retailer to scale.

Challenge:

  • We worked with an e-commerce retailer (£1.8m in revenue, 100% YoY growth, no outside funding), build a business case for investment over an 8-12 month period. 

Outcome:

  • We helped them identify and focus on metrics that would appeal to investors.

  • We continued to help perfect their approach as they worked to prepare the business to be able to prove investors funds could be deployed in a way that would generate a strong ROI. 

BUSINESS PLAN WRITING

Designing the business model for a co-working space

Challenge:

  • We worked with the tenant of a large, commercial space who wanted to transform the venue into a multi-story co-working and members space.
     

Outcome:

  • We designed their strategy and developed a revenue model that demonstrated the number of desks and occupancy space that was necessary for the business to be viable. 

  • The business plan and pitch deck was then used with the landlord to allow them to make the change, and with investors to finance it

RESTAURANT BUSINESS PLAN

First UK location for a restaurant franchise.

Challenge:

  • We worked to develop a business plan for the first UK location of a 200+ location restaurant franchise, already active in China, Australia, New Zealand and Canada. 

Outcome:

  • We worked with the team to help them build an investment case, understand costs and staffing structure, then secure visas for staff from the UK government and space from property developers. 

BUSINESS PLAN WRITING

Helping a healthcare practice expand to a bigger location

Challenge:

  • We worked with a successful and growing cosmetic surgery practise, who needed to raise financing to move into larger offices, and hire a bigger team, removing capacity constraints on their growth.
     

Outcome:

  • We reviewed their historical finances, spoke to their team, understood the size and scope of their database, and designed a business plan that clearly demonstrated the size of the opportunity by moving to a new location. 

  • The business plan we produced was use both to convince the landlord of the viability of the business, and to convince the bank to provide financing to enable the move.
