Well here are a few ideas for you:Vision: Most of all any investor and you yourself, will need to know what you are intending to do with your business. How you see it growing and how passionate you are about it. So paint a vision of where you are now, what kind of business you want and how you are going to get to where you want to be.Strategies: You need to detail your business, financial, marketing and advertising strategy that will support your visions.Products and Services: What you are selling, to whom and at what prices. You should detail how the products are manufactured and delivered as well how protected they are from being copied. You should also detail how your products are different from your competitors.Market: You should detail who your potential customers are and where you can find them. You should also itemise how difficult it is for a competitor to enter the market.Team: Detail who your principle staff are that are going to help your business start.Financials: What all this is going to cost you and what might be left as your profit.Funding: How much extra money you want and where you are going to get your money from.Exit Strategy: When it is all over or you or your investors want to leave, how the investors can get their money back and you leave happily with a profit.Last but not least, remember that a business plan is not just for the beginning. Get it out of the drawer regularly and refer to it to remember where you wanted to be. Update it regularly as your company grows and when you get a little lost.Good luck with your new business. ————————————————-
