To do so, you will need to provide realistic financial forecasts that demonstrate what it will take to start and to develop your business.

At a minimum, financial forecasts should cover both the Startup and Initial Expansion phases for the business and should include monthly calculations (3-years) of: Revenue, Expense, Earnings; and Cash Flow.

Your Business Plan Format

You do not need a full-blown business plan to establish a dialogue with us. If you pass the prequalification questionnaire, we will invite you to submit a slide presentation outlining your proposal. Your presentation should have no more than 30 slides and address all of the key attributes of your business, taking into consideration the comments outlined above. After all, if you cannot communicate your idea to us in 30 slides, you also may not be able to convince your customers.

Once we've reviewed your slide presentation, and we like what we see, we will contact you and setup a conference call during which some of our team members will try to gain a more in-depth understanding of your proposal.


We believe in confidentiality and will treat your information with utmost confidence; however, due to the nature of our business and the volume of proposals we review, we are unable to sign any non-disclosure agreements.
