When your company is attempting to raise capital, it’s quite likely that prospective investors will want to see a business plan at some point. You can download a free business plan template here and make it your own by customizing it to your needs.

There is no “right” way to organize a business plan. What is right is what works for you and for your company. What is important, though, is that the plan at least touches on the topics included in the business plan template. The order presented here is a suggested one only – and one which emphasizes the people (management) and marketing aspects by placing these high on the list of contents.

The Executive Summary is a very important part of the business plan. Think of this as your “elevator pitch” – i.e. you’ve only got a minute to tell your story and get someone’s interest. So, it has to not only garner attention, but summarize the salient facts. If not properly done, the reader may not even be inclined to go through the rest of the document.

You can obtain a free template (in MS Word) format by downloading it here.
