90 Days to Creating a Fundable Startup Explained in Patrick Henry’s Newest Book
Last week, Patrick Henry, CEO of QuestFusion, announced the publication of his new book PLAN COMMIT WIN to help startups obtain funding to grow their businesses. “Building and running a successful startup takes tenacity, perseverance, planning, and promotion. It also takes money,” he explains. In his book, Henry presents a three-part plan that enables companies to move beyond bootstrapping and attract outside capital. It is the same process that Henry used to raise over $200 million for his companies, and execute over $2 billion in M&A transactions.
Building on his mission to provide strategic guidance for startups and emerging growth companies, Henry shares examples from his own experience, as he goes step-by-step through his formula for success in PLAN COMMIT WIN. “It takes about 90 days to implement the methodology end-to-end, assuming you are starting from scratch. It can also be used as a screening vehicle to see what components you may be missing from your plan or pitch,” he explains. Not only does Henry’s process help articulate future goals, it also provides investors with a clear understanding of where the business is now and where it is going. The PLAN COMMIT WIN™ process includes:
- Assembling a Team
- Innovating & Adjusting Your Ideas
- Planning the Course
- Executing the Plan
- Articulating Progress
- Measuring Results
Henry sums up PLAN COMMIT WIN this way: “If you follow this process, you will establish a stronger foundation for your business, increase your chances of getting funded by the right investors, and ultimately drive business success.” Essential reading for anyone starting a business, PLAN COMMIT WIN provides practical tools that will increase the chances of creating a company that endures.
