An analysis of the market and your competitors
Your plan for sales and marketing
- How you will manage the business
A detailed breakdown of your operations plan
Your financial projections and requirements
DO be realistic about the costs of running your business
DO underestimate the financial forecasts rather than overestimate them
DO remember to check spelling and grammar
DO use a final section to sum up the risks
DO ask your SSG Business Investment Consultant to assess your plan before you submit it
DON’T just guess when estimating the costs
DON’T rush through writing your business plan
DON’T forget who you are writing the plan for
