Developing a Business Plan

A business plan should be a work in progress. That's because your business will evolve over time, and be influenced by outside factors such as the economy and local conditions. The Small Business Administration can provide vital information when writing a business plan that bankers and venture capitalists can readily understand.

Elements of a good business plan include:

  • Finding a Niche: Make Your Business Plan Stand Out
    Trying to tackle a wide market is usually too broad a scope for any but the largest companies to handle. As a smaller business, it's often better to offer specialized goods and services that are attractive to a specific group of prospective buyers.
  • Templates for Writing a Business Plan
    What goes into a business plan? There is no single formula for developing a business plan, but some elements are consistent throughout all business plans.
  • Why do you need a business plan?
    Do you really need to make a business plan? The short answer is yes. The importance of a comprehensive, thoughtful business plan cannot be overemphasized.
