Case Study - Fund Raising for Celebrity Events

Every business, big or small, requires a business plan or a blue print or a working plan that explains where you are now, where you want to be and your strategy for growth. A business plan is a blueprint of the steps you need to take to build that business. The plan outlines the company’s objectives, strategies, and the resources needed to achieve the goals. Potential investors look at the business plan to reach a decision. The business plan helps the company focus on its efforts, objectives and company direction. It enables the company to spot potential pitfalls before they happen. It sets realistic targets that allow some flexibility, without steering away from the core objectives. The plan enables you to structure the budget, raise finances and track the growth. A management consultant Pacific Islands was looking to raise funds, especially private equity investments, for a client. The client needed to raise funds for his dream business through crowd funding. The plan was to raise funds for organizing entertainment events throughout the UK and the USA. The management consultant approached DART to prepare a Business Plan.


The initial information given for the project was sketchy but the client kept discussing the ideas. Our Analysts discussed with the management consultant and the client and prepared an outline of the business model. The real challenge was that the business model was unique and there was no similar model available in the market. The plan was prepared to cover the global entertainment industry, with a specific focus on global concerts and events. The report focuses on the US and UK markets.
