Business Plans and Investor Presentations

When you’re looking for a loan or investors to grow your business, you need a plan. Whether you are launching a new business or expanding your current venture, clearly articulating your vision with a business plan is a critical first step.

Business plans tell a story: they also help you, the entrepreneur, refine your business operations and growth strategy, and communicate to potential investors that you’ve thought through every detail.

Let Julia Shanks Food Consulting help you articulate your vision by:

  • Coaching you through the business planning process
  • Writing a plan that is appropriate for investors
  • Creating a investor presentation deck
  • Building a dynamic financial projections model for investors and testing your operating assumptions.

Get started with our Business Plan Template for Restaurants or Business Plan Template for Farms (templates for food entrepreneurs coming soon.) For more information or to schedule an initial consultation, call 617-945-8718 or send us an email. We look forward to helping you succeed!


Thank you so much for making this the easiest, most enjoyable business plan experience ever.”Kate Canney, The Neighborhood Farm


The business plan you did was excellent. I review lots of Business Plans, including for the Center for Women and Enterprise, as part of my Board of Directors volunteer work, and I just had to tell you I was impressed. “Carol Sanchez, Sanchez and Santiago, Certified Public Accountants
