Hello. I’m just joining here, so I may be a little late to add anything of value.
What you need to understand is that a Business Plan can be as complicated or as simple as you make it. The boundary between the two exists depending upon your intended audience. Is the goal to get a business loan to start your chocolate shop or are you trying to find a financial backer / partner? The more complicated the goal or intent of your need, the more complicated you need to build your Business Plan.
As a rule of thumb, here is my basic outline for a Business Plan when I put them together. Again, I don’t use every section every time, it depends upon my goal. This is a good place to start and then whittle down what isn’t needed during development.
- Executive Summary
- Business/Industry Overview
- Market Analysis and Competition
- Sales and Marketing Plan
- Ownership and Management Plan
- Operating Plan
- Financial Plan
