Many winning businesses owe part of their success to proper planning. That’s why SEED has put together it’s Business Plan Booklet. The booklet is essentially a workbook, which is set up in a question and answer format to assist you in thinking through the various aspects of your business and planning for its viability and success. Please feel free to use it as an outline for your own narrative or simply fill in the answers as a practice. As part of SEED’s loan application, a business plan is required for all businesses in existence less than one year or those which have not yet reached break even.
(Please save a blank copy of the Business Plan Booklet to your desktop before filling out electronically).
