If you are looking for a partner, financing, angle investor or venture capital, you will be asked to make a business plan. Even if you don’t need the capital to start your new business venture, you’ll still be happy to have a business plan prepared to help you prove to yourself that you have the right things and that the business is economically viable. The first step in starting your new business will be to make a customized business plan. Please use this template as your template to make sure you don’t forget anything important. This is a business plan format and the outline I made after reading over ten business plan books and taking the best of each and putting them into a single outline. I freely give this to you and wish you great success in your new job. It is the great entrepreneurial spirit and entrepreneur who built this great nation, I am happy to see that you are one of us.
