Business Planning Resources

Use these tools for a very fast business plan

1.)  DCBDC forecasting tool (5 year financial statement generator)

2.) Youtube video (lean business plan)

These might be more useful for a more in-depth business plan

3.) The numbers:  Financial Forecast template (Excel based) - 3 year
        don't forget to click here for instructions on using Financial Forecast Template

4.) The words: Business Plan template (Word based) (each section comes with good instructions - this is the written part of the plan)


Hint:  It may be better to do the written part of your business plan first (the words).  Putting your idea to paper in a structured way makes the financial part easier to complete.  Some people feel more  comfortable describing their business in words rather than numbers.  Either way, the DCBDC staff can assist in using the tools described.  Every business plan will contain both numbers and words.
