Startups would often pitch me over email for investment, introductions, referrals etc. Often, the first thing that I ask for is an executive summary. No one has the time or patience to read long emails… the doc is an opportunity to keep the email short and sweet and include the details of the startup, market, team, tech and investment needs in a structured way that is easy to scan.
I came across a very useful free Executive Summary Template, and I thought I’d share it with you. It gives entrepreneurs a pre-formatted template and step-by-step guide to writing an clear Executive Summary in English. The template was created by Israeli startup ebrain, a new online English editing service.
The company has a team of human professional English editors who correct and improve your English writing so that it sounds like a native English speaker wrote it. They edit all types of documents, but they specialize in business documents like executive summaries, corporate decks, business plans, market research, etc.
ebrain positions itself in between cheap automated software and expensive private editors – they offer the same level of quality as the traditional private editor, but are priced more like a Fiverr gig. The service was designed to be the quickest, easiest, and most cost-effective way to get your English checked and improved when you need it.
Their vision is to try and level the playing field for non-native English-speaking businesses, job seekers, and students. The company wants to help these individuals break the language barrier that all too often prevents them from being able to compete in the international arena.
According to the founders, “With ebrain, you never have to feel worried or embarrassed about making mistakes in your writing again. We’re proud to be able to solve what we’ve seen first-hand is a real problem that people face every day. Our goal is to ensure that English will never stand in your way.”
