How to Write a Business Plan

Front Cover
Kogan Page, 2001 - Business planning - 138 pages

Business plans are required to raise finance for a new venture, sell a business or to provide a blueprint for management in the future. Without such a plan, no bank, venture capital house, or head office will consider finance for start-up or expansion.

How to Write a Business Plan provides the expert guidance you will need to produce your plan. It leads you through the whole process step by step, covering all the important issues along the way, such as:

structure of the plan;

the proposal;

the sales forecast;

financial considerations;

risk assessment;

internal business plans.

The future of your business may depend upon the business plan you produce and you only get one chance to make a good impression. This practical book will help you to get it right first time.
