Business Idea Investigation: David B. Robinson, CPA’s Business Idea Investigation provides clients with a 10-12 page document covering the most powerful highlights of a business concept or idea. This service:

- Helps entrepreneurs and business owners to qualify an idea, research an industry, consider risks and assess interest before preparing a completed business plan.

Robinson, CPA’s Business Idea Investigation is completed in 10-15 business days and covers the key points of the business or business concept - including company/business model overview, market analysis, customer overview, competitive analysis, marketing strategies and management overview. This approach also relies upon the active involvement of the company’s principals to assist us in precisely defining the business idea and target market. This level of service requires a fee of $750 to $2000 depending on the complexity of the idea and level of advance preparation.

Facilitation of a Customized Business Plan: David B. Robinson, CPA assists clients in preparing professional business plans that help them achieve their stated funding and growth goals. Business objectives, business models and complex technologies are explained in clear, concise and compelling language and then packaged into a document that meets the expectations of professional investors. This service is necessary whether you are starting a new business, raising private equity, securing bank financing, preparing for rapid growth, merging or acquiring another company, or simply looking to impress potential strategic partners, management candidates or vendors.

The cost of this service is between $4,500 and up depending on your level of participation and the business. Our approach as the facilitator of the customized plan relies upon the active involvement of your company’s principals (management, boards, investors, etc.), including their consistent participation in high-level strategy and question/answer sessions, assumption-building exercises and the organizing-writing-editing process. This approach ensures that the final business plan properly presents your team’s agreed upon ideas and strategies for achieving business success.
