Your Business Plan
We want to make applying for investment as smooth as possible, so
this business plan format has been developed with social investors.
Our aim was to help investees move through the process more
smoothly by ensuring that your business plan contains the majority
of information required for an application.
By considering the requirements of different lenders, we aimed to
produce a document that will have relevance to most social investors.
This is a template, so not all of it will be relevant to everyone, but it
offers guidance and prompts to produce a strong, investment focused
plan. You know your business best, so your finished plan should be
appropriate to the business you are running and the support you
require. And remeber, plans are judged on content, not weight.
