Writing a Business Plan - Narrative

This is a FREE Workshop sponsored by DECD.  Preregistration is required.

What is a Business Plan?

A business plan precisely defines your business, identifies your goals and serves as your company's resume.

In this this workshop learn how to prepare the narrative portion of a business plan, including understanding each section that should be included, and identifying resources for gathering information to support the business plan.

Why do I need a Business Plan?

The real value of creating a business plan is not simply having the finished product in hand. The value lies in the process of researching and analyzing your business is a systematic way. The act of planning helps you question your assumptions as you develop the following sections:

  • Executive Summary
  • General Company Description
  • Products and Services
  • Marketing Plan
  • Operational Plan
  • Management, professional and advisory support
