Business Planning Services
Our business plan writers offer a full suite of services to help you grow your business and attract funding.
Business Plans and Feasibility
We at Blue Horizon pride ourselves on providing individualized service that is tailored to each customer’s needs. If you already have a business plan, our Business Plan Scorecard program allows you to send it to our seasoned experts for careful review and grading. Once your plan is in place, our books, DVDs, and other tools can help you find funding sources and get your company off the ground.
If you prefer to have an expert handle the details, we provide business plan writing services targeted to the size of your business and the amount of funding you need. 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 everything required by angel and venture capitalist investors investing in larger companies.
Jacksonville is currently experiencing a cycle of rapid growth, and positioning your new business in the crowded marketplace requires finesse. Before you commit to a start-up venture, why not allow us to perform a Feasibility Study? Your local Jacksonville consultant’s expertise will help you understand the current market, including the competitive landscape and future projects that are already in process. If you decide to move forward, we will credit the fees you paid for the Feasibility Study toward one of our business plan packages.
Your business plan is a key component in starting your new business, but it is not enough by itself. Launching a new business requires a seemingly endless list of decisions and paperwork filing obligations. We are here to help.
If you need to open right away, our Quick Launch package has a two week guarantee. Under this option, we will search the availability of your chosen business name, file your articles of incorporation, and obtain your federal tax ID number. If needed, we will provide 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.
Our top of the line Done For You Business Creation package provides the ultimate in customized, personal service. This package allows us to put our years of experience into giving your business the best possible chance for success, while you retain creative control over the company’s direction. An expert in federal, state, and local regulations, your local Jacksonville consultant is also a master of the techniques that will position your company as a frontrunner in your industry. When you choose this option, we will walk you through every decision and milestone of the first year of your company’s life. Your local expert will even serve as CEO, CFO, or COO for that year. This frees you up to focus on running your company rather than getting bogged down in making decisions.
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 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 Jacksonville and across the United States. An expert in your specific market, your local consultant also has access to the vast experience that Blue Horizon Venture Consulting has amassed 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.

“My banker says I need a business plan. Like yesterday.”
We make it easy for you to tell your business story in a logical format that bankers love.
Whether you’re starting up, or expanding and making moves, we’ve got the plan for you.
What RBP clients are saying.
Wow. I didn’t know what to expect when my banker recommended I hire Bethany to write an expansion business plan for my SBA loan. After meeting with her for a couple hours, she came back with a 50+ page formatted, detailed—essentially—research paper with financial projections that I would never have time to write. She worked directly with my bank to meet the specific underwriting requirements they needed in the plan. She became part of the team, plus she was cool to have around. I can’t recommend her enough!
