Project Deliverable 5: Executive Summary & Presentation
Due Week 9 and worth 100 points
This assignment consists of two (2) sections: a written executive summary, and a slide presentation consisting of twelve (12) slides. Note: You must submit both sections as separate files for the completion of this assignment.
Now that you have completed a draft for all primary sections of your business plan, you will complete the executive summary. The executive summary is the section of your plan that is often read first, especially by investors. Your executive summary must persuade a reader to spend the time to find out about your product, market, and techniques. For this reason, it’s best to prepare your summary last—after you have thought through all the issues.
Like the executive summary, only after you have fleshed out your business plan will you have the information you will need for a slide presentation (e.g., PowerPoint). This 12-slide presentation conveys the most important aspects of your business in a short time. More sophisticated investors, such as angel investors and venture capitalists, will typically not look at your written business plan until they have seen your slide presentation.
