Business Planning Roadmap

Our business planning services center around a project roadmap which takes your idea from conception to realization. Most cannabis permit acquisition projects fail due to under-capitalization planning. Identifying the right partners and developing an appropriate action plan from the onset of the project helps ensure the success of the venture.

Legal Cannabis Market

The legal cannabis markets within the United States and abroad are a booming industry that is already producing billions of dollars in revenue. By 2020, some experts are projecting that it will be as high as a 20 to 40 billion-dollar industry. Business planning services pose one of the most challenging aspects of submission.

It requires team building and market analysis. Operating a business within the sector comes with many challenges. Regulations vary widely state-to-state, or even county-to-county, access to banking is almost non-existent, and the federal government still categorizes marijuana as a Schedule 1 narcotic.

Business Planning Services

We provide organizations with business plan creation services for those looking to enter the market. We carefully plan and document an opportunity analysis that shapes the way you approach the market. The Quantum 9 team studies patient’s projected medicinal acquisition for determination of appropriate production levels to meet market demand and product rollout strategies.

Also, our opportunity analysis documentation assesses the local, state and national consumer landscape to identify the optimal product(s) engineering for patient adoption, and the optimal marketing approach for the maximization of consumer purchases.

Cannabis Market Analysis Consulting

Step 1: Business Planning Services | We conduct a market analysis that includes both a social analysis of long-term industry projections as well as a local (state) forecast analysis. The political overview is utilized to understand the long-term implications of a potential cannabis plan, as well as a possible national rollout of a particular product or brand. The local (state) analysis is used to determine patient participation and consumptions allowing for year-by-year market use analysis to establish product manufacturing and sales best practices. Together, these reports enable accurate pro forma projections of the necessary production facility and construction design plans; including business planning services, workforce, and supply-chain management and marketing forecasts.

Cannabis Pro Forma Consulting

Step 2: Business Planning Services | The Pro Forma offers clients a comprehensive business model and projection spreadsheets tailored to the customer’s goals. These models and projections determine market-entry and their product and service offerings. Consumption projections are shaped for detailed capital expenditure including:

Similar to the Business Plan, it is highly customizable and can include charts, infographics, and photographs. A partner would receive the takeaway from the client after a meeting. It allows the client to provide potential partners with the most noteworthy aspects of the presentation in a form that does not overwhelm the potential partner.
