Business Plans

If you’re looking to develop a business plan, or if you just want to understand what its components are, the resources on this page will take you through the steps involved in writing a business plan -  and, since you’ll need to include similar information, they can also help you prepare your pitch.

Once you’ve learned more about what should be included in a good business plan, use the databases on the Company Research page to help you as you write specific sections of your plan. Even if you choose not to write a business plan, it's helpful to conduct a SWOT analysis and market research; they can improve your pitch and help you grow your business in the right direction.
