The business plan

You have found your business idea and want to put it into practice? Then you should prepare your start into self-employment. The most important instrument for this is the business plan.

A business plan helps you to plan your project step by step. It is crucial if you want to convince someone of your business idea and your plans - banks, for example, use the business plan to check whether they will grant you a loan.

Tip: Get advice beforehand. An advisor can give you helpful tips on how to improve your business plan. 

You can find out how you should write your business plan, what belongs in the plan and what else you need to consider on the pages of the start-up portal. You already know what should be in your business plan? Then the Gründerplattform will show you how to write it step by step.

Are you wondering whether your business idea has been sufficiently thought through? Are you unsure what your financial planning should look like? Then take a look at the checklists on the start-up portal.
