How to Write a Business Plan: Step by Step – On Demand

A good business plan guides you through each stage of starting and managing your business. You’ll use your business plan as a roadmap for how to structure, run, and grow your new business. It’s a way to think through the key elements of your business.

Business plans can help you get funding or bring on new business partners. Investors want to feel confident they’ll see a return on their investment. Your business plan is the tool you’ll use to convince people that working with you — or investing in your company — is a smart choice.

Below are the steps we will go through in this workshop:

  1. Gather costs of starting your business and review the financial model
  2. Review the business plan template
  3. Discuss the role each section plays in developing a comprehensive plan
  4. Indicate which sections to begin with
  5. Review useful tools to complete the business plan
