Business Sector Guidance

Weathervane, directingand guidingBusiness Sector Guidance

Every business sector is different, every sector has it’s own peculiarities, facts, customs and niches. We do not propose to know about every business sector, far from it.

The purpose of our Business Sector Guidance is to provide companies with resources to enable them to more easily obtain finance.

The ‘So What’ Factor

When looking to raise finance you are after a lender believing in what you are doing, agreeing with your forecasts and accepting you are the expert you say you are. The ‘So What’ Factor is a question we ask of our clients when they promote a fact about their business or plans, it works something like this;

‘The sector is growing fast, it is now worth double what it was two years ago and we will benefit from this’

The answer is ‘So What?’. For every claim you make about your business when seeking finance, ask your self the ‘So What’ question and see if you can support what you are saying.

Our business sector guidance notes are about giving some outline details on different industry sectors to enable you to support what you are saying and cover off the ‘So What’ questions. These guidance notes will also help in reinforcing your business plan, financial forecasts and support your knowledge of your sector.
