The business plan

People who want to start, or take over, a company need a business plan. Because when you write it down, it then becomes clear whether the idea is really mature, what information is still missing, and what the company could actually look like in concrete terms. Content, design and layout are decisive factors here.

A business plan is like an “itinerary” that describes the various stages of your journey, i.e. the respective guide, the daily program, the length of stay and the means of transport. Except that in this case it is not a geographical journey, but rather an entrepreneurial and indeed personal one. You don’t make a business plan just for a bank, funding agency, or a competition. You have to make it for yourself! There is simply no better way to comprehensively prepare for starting a business.

Below you will find everything you need to know about the business plan, its content, design and layout. You will find templates, tools and tips for your business concept and you can – if you want – even start creating your business plan right away!
