This phase involves an analysis of the enterprise Business Plan that is applying for an investment:
First, the entrepreneurs should send a summarized business plan, with a maximum of 3 pages, explaining the business idea, competitive advantages, cash flow statement (describing cash generation and needs) and the entrepreneurs resumés. Analysis and feedback should take about 1-2 weeks.
Ideas and entrepreneurs that show high potential will be asked to send an expanded business plan, including a valuation analysis, market potential, business model description, entrepreneurs detailed resumés, financial statements and an implementation plan. This expanded business plan should have a maximum of 15 pages.
