A feasibility study should be always completed before launching any major new project, investment or venture. It serves a critical function in independently evaluating a plan or planned course of action, taking a fresh look at the assumptions behind it, the risks it faces and its chances of success.

No successful company can survive and grow without a well researched and clearly articulated strategy.

Success in any business requires that you communicate the essence of the business in a clear and compelling way to investors, strategic partners, key management personnel and others.
