You should also include an executive summary at the start of the document. This will summarise the main points of your plan, offering a quick overview of what you are proposing.
4. Professional Formatting
Presentation isn’t everything, but it can help to make a good first impression. And as such, if you’re looking to impress investors, you should give some thought to formatting your business plan. To make sure yours has a professional finish, you may want to include:
A title page with key business information and contact details
Page numbers and section headers to guide the reader
Visual aids such as charts, graphs and illustrations
You should also make sure that the formatting and fonts are consistent throughout the document.
5. Editing and Proofreading
Finally, don’t forget to edit and proofread carefully! The first draft of a document is never the best. Instead, seek feedback from colleagues or friends and use this to refine your plan. And once you have a draft you’re happy with, make sure to check it one last time for typos.
