"A bank is actually a supplier of money, but must be approached like a client: with a persuasive 'sales pitch'. Banks are not providing less money to companies than they used to, but do expect the company to provide more information on their projects and detailed business plans. Translating this vision and the enthusiasm of the enterpreneur into a well-founded financial model that the banks wish to see is an art in itself."
