There are many companies that offer business plan documentation services for funding purposes, however they are not all equal.

Some companies offer "Cookie-Cutter" business plans, which are essentially templates with your information included. While this may look acceptable to clients; banks and venture capital firms will not pay much attention to business plans that has the same information contained in previous submissions. We highly advise against working with do it yourself templates, or companies that do not provide custom research.

You will also find other companies claiming to offer business plans written by "MBA graduates" or "Ex-Fortune 500 executives", with pricing from $1500-$15,000. Needless to say, be wary of businesses that will charge amounts this high, or claim to be something they are not.

Keep in mind the following:

The first impression of your business idea is derived solely from your documentation. It is vital that your first impression does not become your only impression.
