A business proposal or business plan is a document that spells out a company’s expected course of action for a specified period, usually including a detailed listing and analysis of risks and uncertainties. For the small business, it should examine the proposed products, the market, the industry, the management policies, the marketing policies, production needs, and financial needs. Frequently, it is used as a prospectus for potential investors and lenders.
The first link below will give you an outline of a proposal. The second link (Business Plans Handbook Series) goes to several e-books that provide sample Business Plans. NOTE: if you are accessing these from off-campus, you will need your LCCC ID.
Print books that are available about business plans can be found by following the 2nd link below.
