The Written Business Plan范文
Whilst contemporary research shows that the vast majority of nascent entrepreneurs andsmall business owner managers do not want to develop a formal, written business plan, thereality is that we all engage in planning in virtually every walk of life. It’s very hard to survivewithout planning and sooner or later virtually every business person will be forced into
having to write a formal plan by the requirements of at least one major stakeholder at somepoint. For most new venture proposals it is usually either seeking funding from an investor,
a loan from a bank, or a long term contract from an initial customer that provides themotivation to write the first formal plan.
