If you need to attract investors, raise finance, issue shares or perhaps even sell up, and knowing the true market value of your business is essential. Some 68% of business plans submitted to members of the British Venture Capital Association (BVCA) are inadequate for their purpose, resulting in them being ineligible or having to be resubmitted. According to the UK’s National Business Angels Network (NBAN), more than nine out of 10 entrepreneurs fail to persuade anybody to invest in their new company.
