Business plans are an essential part of the fundraising process. Funders, (debt and equity) require a business plan in order to assess your business so they can decide on whether or not they write you a cheque.
But many entrepreneurs struggle with writing business plans. You may well be in the same boat. Fears and frustrations entrepreneurs typically have include:
- not knowing how or where to start
- not knowing what you need to include
- not knowing how to construct a financials section
- having a fear about if your business plan makes sense
- trying to build the business plan and run your business at the same time; how do you put your time to best use?
Despite these very understandable fears, creating a business plan should actually be a very straightforward process for business owners. You see the problem many entrepreneurs have is they get caught up in following a defined structure that is taught and written about in business literature. However, to create a powerful business plan, that demonstrates your authority, and which you can create in a reasonable period of time, you need to put a framework around your plan, and ask the most relevant questions of your business to build the business plan.
