Our business plan writers in Phoenix and Tucson serve entrepreneurs throughout the southwest region. Although most projects can be completed over the phone, we often travel to meet with local clients. Our local service area includes the cities of Phoenix, Scottsdale, Paradise Valley, Tempe, Mesa, Chandler, Gilbert, Glendale, Cave Creek, Casa Grande, Tucson, Flagstaff, Yuma, Kingman, Lake Havasu City, Santa Fe, Albuquerque, Denver, and Las Vegas.

In addition to our Phoenix-area business plan consultants, we have many other business plan writers distributed worldwide. Depending on your specific circumstances, one of our other team members may be a better fit for your needs. We will do our best to ensure that the consultant responsible for managing your engagement is the person best qualified to serve you.

Cayenne Consulting's Advantages

Most so-called "business plan consultants" are really just "business plan writers" who simply take what you say, transcribe it into off-the-shelf business plan software, and hand you the results. We go much deeper and help you develop the most viable business model and strategy for success, which we then communicate in a compelling business plan.

As a result, nearly all of our clients are able to secure meetings with investors, and a large percentage have succeeded in raising capital or selling their companies. We challenge you to find another business plan consulting firm that can make this claim. A business plan developed by Cayenne Consulting could make the difference between your success and failure.

Here are some top reasons entrepreneurs choose to work with Cayenne Consulting:

  • Fully Customized: Some firms charge low fees because they have an assembly-line, cookie-cutter approach to business plan preparation. Our business plans are 100% custom written from scratch.
  • Get it Right the First Time: Learn about the advantages and disadvantages of various approaches to preparing business plans.
  • One Consultant: Some firms assign a team of consultants to your business. That means you're paying multiple consultants to get up to speed. This approach is expensive, and makes it difficult to ensure that all materials have the same "voice" and consistency. Our method avoids these problems.
  • Save Money: We are not cheap, but about half of our clients came to us after a business plan prepared by a less qualified consultant did not work out. Why not get it right the first time and save money?
  • Save Time: Save literally hundreds of hours... valuable time you can devote to your products, customers, and company.
  • Work with Experts: Our business plan consultants are second to none. We are experienced entrepreneurs and understand what you are going through. We have considerable experience in creating and executing upon business models of all kinds. We have a keen sense of what works in the marketplace and what doesn't. Many of us have MBAs or PhDs from schools like Harvard, Stanford, MIT, Wharton, CalTech, Cornell, Columbia, and Chicago. We also have experts in financial analysis, market research, FDA/regulatory issues, exit planning, and other fields.
  • No Salespeople: We don't have a slick sales professional with a telephone script "sell" you and then hand you off to a junior consultant you know nothing about. From Day 1, you will deal directly with the professional consultant who will actually work with you. That way, you know exactly what you're getting.
  • Ongoing Support: We don't stop when the business plan is done. We have a talented team ready to help you execute it as well, either on a retained basis as interim members of your founding team or on a project basis, as needed.
