Make a Business Plan

 

Introduction:  
  Do you have what it takes to be an entrepreneur? An entrepreneur is a person who owns a business and is the decision maker. This person takes risks--but not without doing research!
Task:  
  You are going to develop a business plan and present it to the class. In the business plan, you must decide if your business is going to sell a product or provide a service. Other factors you must consider are your competitors, financing your venture, and a competitive price. The business plan must be well organized, be easy to read, and follow a logical format.

Your final product will be a PowerPoint presentation that describes the business you proposed, the information that you found supporting it, and a short business plan.
Process:  
  There are several important steps you need to follow when writing a business plan:

Step 1: The Executive Summary
Step 2: The Company Description
Step 3: The Product/Service
Step 4: The Marketing Plan
Step 5: The Operation Plan
Step 6: The Financial Plan
