SBA Celebrates National Write a Business Plan Month

Why Write it Down?

If you haven't written down or recently revisited your business plan, there's no better time than National Write a Business Plan Month.

In the beginning of your planning, writing a business plan is a way to think through the key elements of your business.

A good business plan guides you through each stage of starting and managing your business. When complete, you’ll use your business plan as a road map for how to structure, run, and grow your business.

Additionally, business plans can help you get funding or bring on new business partners. Investors want to feel confident they’ll see a return on their investment. Your business plan is the tool you’ll use to convince people that working with you — or investing in your company — is a smart choice.
