Funding Application Requirements

Your company funding application should be limited to an executive summary of no more than five pages.
Entire business plans can often exceed 30+ pages, which makes it cumbersome for our members to efficiently screen applicants. Instead of sending your complete business plan, we ask that you limit your application to your executive summary so that our members can quickly and easily locate the essential information they need to make a funding decision.
Five pages are more than enough space to tell investors what they need to know about your business. Through our experience, we have found that business owners who clearly articulate their company’s mission, product, market, financials, and future projections in five pages or less have the highest chance of success with investors.
