Your completed plan defines your success criteria from starting up to making a profit. Be specific and concise with the details of your document. Any potential investors may simply scan your summary rather than reading every page. Your financial forecasts are important as these show how you'll make money from your products.
Think about your target audience that could include investors, customers, staff, employees, and a personal check-list for yourself. You may need to adapt pricing or financial action plans to take account of confidential information.
Below you'll find detailed guides on the information required before, during, and after you've started your business. These helpful articles help chart your progress through to successful completion.
