A free Business Plan Template may just be what you need to 'kick-start' yourself into creating your own business plan.
No matter what you think about business plans, if you want funding, you will need one. Somehow you will need to explain how much money you need, and what for.
Here at Business-Funding-Insider we have seen thousands of business plans. Only a very small percentage of business plans made it through the first round. Why is that?
Very simple: most entrepreneurs have no clue what an investor wants to know about them.
Will a free business plan template be sufficient? Maybe, maybe not, but it will get you structured and focused. Next you can decide if you want to go one step further and really commit to your business.
A good business plan will help the investor figure out what you and your business are all about. I have no idea how much time I have spent and wasted on business plans that look really great, but in some cases I could just not figure out what their business was all about. Some business plans didn't even mention how much money was needed. Now that might be a good thing in a first contact, but not in a business plan that is intended to raise funding.
Most business plan end up in the paper shredder, or get the 'delete' treatment. Why?
