Allegiance degree of engagement with portfolio companies requires that we be extremely selective in who we work with. For those who wish to have AllTech Lab consider working with their company, consider the following:
1. Get an Introduction
Please do not submit your business plan without a referral. The most effective introduction is from someone who knows you and knows us. A referral, from our partners, portfolio companies, or contacts within the industry, is an important introduction and will ensure your business plan gets the attention it deserves.
2. Submit Your Plan
We recommend a length of three pages for executive summaries and 10 - 12 pages for business plans. Typically we would expect to learn the following information from your executive summary and business plan:
What is your business? What problem do you solve? Who currently has the problem? How do you solve it? How big is the market potential? What is your distinct advantage?
What industry and in which segments of the value chain does your business fit?
What is your business model - primary source of revenue, primary distribution mechanism, primary competitors, lead partners and/or target partners?
What are your financial projections - margins, volumes, etc.? What are the assumptions and sensitivities behind these projections?
How much capital will you need to develop your offering and bring it to market?
Who are the key members of your team, their backgrounds and references?
In what stage of development are you (idea/investigation, early development, shipping product or service)?
Why will you succeed?
The best way to submit a business plan and bios of your management team is by email to email@example.com in Microsoft Word, Microsoft PowerPoint, or Adobe Acrobat Reader format, with a short executive summary. Our preference is to receive plans through email; however you can alternatively send a hard copy of your plan to our mailing address
3. Our Evaluation Process
If a plan is of interest to us, we will contact you for a phone or in-person introductory meeting (depending on the location of the entrepreneur and schedules). Next steps involve in-depth due diligence on the company itself, the technology and the industry including reference checking, and finally a meeting with the full AllTech Lab Management team, at which time a final decision would be made.
