It is common, especially for start-ups, to have four formats as follows for the same business plan. 

(i) Elevator pitch: It is a three minute summary of the business plan's executive summary. This is often used as a teaser to awaken the interest of potential funders, customers, or strategic partners. 

(ii) A pitch deck with oral narrative : A hopeful, entertaining slide show and oral narrative that is meant to trigger discussion and interest of potential investors in reading the written presentation, i.e. the executive summary and a few key graphs showing financial trends and key decision making benchmark. 

(iii) A written presentation for external stakeholders: A detailed, well written, and pleasingly formatted plan targeted at external stakeholders. 

(iv) An internal operational plan: A detailed plan describing planning details that are needed by management but may not be of interest to external stakeholders.
