Business funding - it starts with a plan!

Business funding - it starts with a plan! | Startups | Scoop.it

If you’re looking for funding to start your business, one of the first things you need is a business plan.

 

When starting a business I always advise people to write a business plan. Why? The process of creating a plan ensures you work through what you are trying to achieve, it validates your business idea, and allows you to see where you are going and how you intend to get there. It is never just because your bank manager or potential source of finance will want to see one.

Whilst there is a lot of press coverage about how banks are not lending money, one aspect of this is how poorly a business plan is presented to a bank  in order to receive funds.

It's definitely evolving this way. Crowdfunding is internet based and has caused many paradigms to change or bust already. Good read.
