This plan for a television and entertainment programming company demonstrates how partnerships with others in the field can help ensure success in this rapidly moving industry.
Coverage includes financing, products, marketing, facilities, management, and other elements of a well-developed plan.
New programs will be funded by "factoring" credit lines, income, and existing capital against distribution contracts for short periods of time.
This will allow the company to develop new programming and ancillary products well into the future by continuously cycling cash flow and lines of credit.
