Developing a clear and strategic business plan

The first, and often the toughest part of starting a new business venture, is having a clear, concise strategic and operational business plan. This forms the road map for your business.

Your business plan should answer the following questions:

  • Is your business idea is commercially viable?
  • What sort of market exists for your product or service?
  • Have you defined your business objectives and goals in the short, medium, and long term?
  • Have you defined your target market and potential customer base?
  • Who are your competitors?
  • How much start up capital do you need?
