We take your privacy seriously
Planigent has created this privacy statement to demonstrate our firm commitment to your privacy. The following discloses our information gathering and dissemination practices for this site.

Planigent has created this Site to help entrepreneurs, consultants, students, and professionals who are interested in writing a business plan or in hiring a consultant to do so. The site is also a primary vehicle for marketing Planigent's business plan writing services. Planigent does not attempt to determine the usage patterns of any individual, business, or other entity.

We use your IP address to help diagnose problems with our server. Your IP address is also used to gather broad demographic information. Note: We reserve the right to deny access to any IP address that attempts to attack our site or deny service to others.

We keep a database of the names and email addresses of subscribers to Planigent's Newsletters and News Digests. We only use this data to send you the information you have requested. We do not and will not send you any other news or offers that you have not specifically asked to receive. We do not and will not sell this list to any other person or business entity except as indicated in the next paragraph. Any correspondence that we send you will include a simple method of unsubscribing from the list.
In the event that we sell our entire business and its assets to another business entity, the database would be considered one of the assets of Planigent. In that case, the purchasing entity would have the right only to send you information consistent with your original request, and not for any additional offers.

Management and Funding
Did you know that one of the most often cited reasons that Venture Capitalists give for their decisions on whether to fund a business or not is management? In fact, many will tell you that they would sooner back a good idea with a great management, than a great idea with only so-so management.
If you intend to give your pitch to a VC firm for later stage financing, make sure you have the right team in place to take the business forward. The fact that the business was your idea will not convince professional financiers that you are the right person to grow the business. The most important quality a management team can have in the eyes of investors is experience, preferably successful experience, in starting and growing a company.

Planigent Tip: Competitive Analysis
Many entrepreneurs approach the Competitive Analysis section of their business plan with trepidation, as if having competitors will invalidate their idea. Don't fall into this trap.
Instead, use this section to show how well you have researched the industry. By demonstrating a thorough assessment of your competition, you are in a perfect position to describe your value proposition and what makes your offering unique. Make the most of it!
