“With Tylers help and expertise in writing our business plan, we were able to redefine our business concept for a wider, more lucrative target market. We revamped our business model, developed a new brand for the company, and honed our sales and marketing strategy. He was professional, timely and his recommendations were spot-on. He worked with us every step of the way to develop the perfect plan for us. The vision and strategy laid out in our business plan have been integral to our success.”

Here’s a clip of an interview with a past client.

“Tyler and Michael’s help was invaluable. I was able to secure seed funding to launch my BETA website because those I approached were impressed with the thoroughness of my business plan and revenue model that was clearly communicated by the plan they prepared.”

“With the attention that Tyler Jensen was able to focus on our company and our business plan, we gained a better understanding of where we fit in our market and how to appeal to our customers. Because of this we were able to successfully define our goals and create a clear strategy to achieve them. We look forward to pursuing the path Tyler helped establish for our company. I would recommend him to anyone interested in starting or growing their business.”

“I believe that when you are building a business, the process of selecting your “Dream Team” should be mutual. The strategic planning process is so multi-dimensional and crucial to the success of your venture. You need someone who has the insight to see the things that you may not see, the talent to organize and enhance the areas you are already strong and the resourcefulness to supplement the areas where you may be lacking. When Tyler and I chose each other, I immediately felt a sense of relief, honor and confidence. He is an incredible person to have on your team and I feel blessed to have him on mine.”

“The professionals at The Startup Garage really took the time to understand me, my vision, and my business. They created a business plan that brought my product to life. With the help of the business plan, the process they took me through and the tough questions they asked, my company was able to raise $150,000 within less than a month of the plan being delivered, and another $200,000 in the following few months. Upon reviewing my plan, my first investor told me that he was able to jump on board quickly because I had clearly thought through my future plans as evidenced in the business plan.”
