Why write a business plan?

  • Without a business plan as a baseline, it will be far more difficult to track your progress, make adjustments, and have historical information readily available to reference when making difficult decisions.
  • Investors and loan providers need to know that you have a solid understanding of the trajectory of your business. You need to prove that there is an attainable and sustainable need for your solution, that you have a strong business strategy, and that your business can be financially stable. 
  • By having a written business plan that you’re regularly reviewing, you can make confident decisions.

5 tips to write a great business plan quickly and easily

  • Keep it short. Business plans should be short and concise. You want your business plan to be read.
  • Accommodate your investors, and keep explanations of your product simple and direct.
  • Test your business idea. Working through your business plan, and starting with a one-page pitch, can help you test the viability of your business idea long before launching.
  • Establish goals and objectives. You should know what you want to get out of your business upfront.
  • Don’t be intimidated. Did you know that the vast majority of business owners and entrepreneurs aren’t business experts?

Key components of a business plan

  • Executive summary: An overview of your business and your plans.
  • Opportunity: What are you actually selling and how are you solving a problem (or “need”) for your market?
  • Execution: How are you going to take your opportunity and turn it into a business?
  • Company and management summary: Investors look for great teams in addition to great ideas.
  • Financial plan: Your business plan isn’t complete without a financial forecast. 
  • Appendix: If you need more space for product images or additional information, use the appendix for those details.
