The venture should have a clear revenue model and a workable path to profitability. Furthermore, there should be a plan of how the wealth created will be harvested by the owners. A comprehensive financial plan will be designed to demonstrate the potential for growth and profitability that is based on accurate and reliable assumptions. With the financial plan in hand, sources of investment capital will be explored and tested. Then the terms and valuation of the deal with the investors will commence. The presentation of the total business plan will require a compelling story about the venture. Furthermore, skillful negotiations with all owners and partners will be required. When funded and launched, the venture team must continuously and ethically implement the business plan and adapt to changing conditions.
