Experienced MBA For Business Plan, Financials
   United States
  |   Los Angeles, CA

Overview

Banks, investors, and the SBA may require a business plan with financial statements to consider you for funding. A good plan also helps you understand how to manage your business and succeed in today's economy.

A finalist in the USC Business School's business plan competition, I'm a USC MBA with experience pitching to angel investors and investment bankers, and with bank and SBA loans.
