Do you need significant funding from investors, banks, or shareholders? If so, a compelling executive summary is essential.
It’s important to have a foundation. I’m assuming you already have a strategic business plan laying out your vision, objectives, and roadmap. If not, create one before seeking funding.
For guidance, you can refer to other articles on this blog, or if pressed for time, consider adopting a simplified 100-day plan.

Follow his recommendations, and you’ll be far ahead. The executive summary is your chance to hook investors. With a compelling overview, you’re on the path to funding success.
