Business Planning

Writing a business plan can seem like a daunting task, and it can be easily overlooked when you know your product or service inside-out. It is, however, a crucial part of developing not only your business idea but defining your objectives and keeping you on-track.

A solid business plan is also a necessity for acquiring most forms of funding or investment. It is your road map to success, and once you get started you will realise that putting one together is not as difficult as it seems. This preparation will help you to avoid future pitfalls, ultimately saving you time and money.

How we can help:

We regularly run workshops in Bristol and Swindon to help with business planning and finance. These workshops are designed to support new start-ups to develop a robust, investment-ready business plan and financial forecast.

We provide practical advice on how to write a business plan, provide a workable template and give guidance on how to source the most suitable finance.

Workshop content:

  • The importance of a business plan
  • What you should include in a business plan
  • Defining your business goals and objectives
  • Business operations
  • Creating a sales forecast and cashflow
  • Business loan and funding
  • Contingency plans
