A corporate business plan for a large organization can be hundreds of pages long.
However, for a small business, it's best to keep the plan short and concise, especially if you intend to submit it to bankers or investors.
That best way to find out whether you do or not is to do your research and write a business plan to see if your idea is feasible.
The simple business plan template presented here will get you started.
A standard business plan consists of a single document divided into several sections including a description of the organization, the market research, competitive analysis, sales strategies, capital and labor requirements, and financial data.
The resulting document can serve as the blueprint for your business and be supplied to financial institutions or investors if debt or equity financing is needed to get your business off the ground.
See How to Write The Management Plan Section of the Business Plan before addressing this section.
Ownership Structure The operating plan outlines the physical requirements of your business, such as office, warehouse, retail space, equipment, inventory and supplies, labor, etc.
Enter your business information including the legal name, address, etc.
