Business Plan Assistance

The business plan is the essential guide to starting and running a business successfully. Developing a sound business plan is an extremely important component of the business startup process. A good business plan:

  • acts as a road map allowing you to look at your business objectively,
  • identifies strengths and weaknesses before opening and every step along the way,
  • is a key part of any financial documentation package providing lenders and investors a clear picture of your business goals.

Several federal and state agencies and some private organizations specialize in helping businesses get started and promoting economic development. The resources provided below do not imply endorsement, however, they provide leads to sound information and assistance as you develop your business plan.
