Creating a new business plan is one of the significant aspects related to the creation of a new business venture. This covers who the founders are and why they started the company, what the products or services offered are or will be, and what steps have been taken toward the launch to date. Investors want to know you have product-market fit, a solid team in place, and scalability—which is the ability to grow sales volume without proportional growth in headcount and fixed costs.
A good plan helps the management of a new venture, by forcing them to put their underlying assumptions down on paper, to check if these are all reasonable, and to create a set of projected (pro forma) financial statements. The working plan is mainly created for internal use and doesn’t require some elements like product pictures, for example.
If you can show that your potential customers are already interested in—or perhaps already buying—your product or service, this is great to highlight. Finally, you may choose to include a proposed organizational chart in your business plan. This will help you decide what marketing strategies to undertake when you start selling your services.
