After the class, attendees may request free, one-on-one assistance from Western Dairyland’s Business Development Specialists at https://www.successfulbusiness.org/request_for_counseling.phtml to delve deeper into their individual small business concepts, including the preparation of a business plan with financial forecasting to present to lenders. A formal business plan is a required document for anyone in search of funding to start a new business, expand an existing business, or launch a new product. Fundamentally, a business plan will include a mission statement, business description, product description, market analysis, marketing plan, operations plan, management plan and financial projections. However, more than just a document, the process involved with putting the components of a business plan together will help the entrepreneur identify and mitigate risk.
