Frequently Ask Questions
How much does it cost to have a business plan developed by Optimus Business Plans?
We do not have set prices. Instead, every business plan is priced based on your needs and the type of business you will be starting. Fill out the “contact us” form or call us at 972-774-4402 and we will discuss your project and what it will cost.
How long does it take to create a business plan?
Every project is different, but generally we can create business plan in 2-3 weeks after our kickoff meeting. In many cases, we can complete the plan in even less time if necessary.
Does Optimus Business Plans fund small businesses?
Optimus does not provide funding for any small businesses at this time. Instead, we focus our efforts on creating quality business plans that help our clients acquire financing through investment firms and banks or other lending institutions. We do have a number of partner firms and investors we work with on a consistent basis with whom we can put you in contact.
I’m in New York and Optimus is in Texas. How can you work with me to write my business plan?
Optimus uses a combination of telephone, email, and online meetings to complete your business plan in an efficient and timely manner. No face-to-face meetings are necessary. This is quite common in the industry.
My business is going to be small. Do I really need a business plan?
Absolutely! Every business should have a business plan. It’s a necessity if you plan to get a loan from a bank or other investor (including friends and family), and our clients often find that it helps them make their businesses more efficient and effective with the capital they do have.
How long will my business plan be?
The length of your plan will depend upon the complexity of your business. Some documents may only be 15 pages, while others could be as long as 50 pages. At Optimus, we focus on putting together a quality business plan that explains your business in great detail, no matter how many pages that takes. Our average business plan is about 30 pages.
Do I have to put money down up front?
Yes. A project cannot begin without a 50% payment. This helps keep our clients motivated to provide us the communication we need from them, and it keeps us motivated to finish your plan quickly so we can receive the last half of our fees.
Why the name “Optimus?”
Optimus is Latin for “noble.” We use it as our motto and we make sure that we do everything the Optimus way.
