Why have one?
A written business plan: makes you to think realistically, objectively and unemotionally about your business. The process of writing a business plan leads to questioning of past and future assumptions. Having a fully developed plan makes it easier to communicate objectives and strategies to partners, employees, investors, backers and so on.
A business plan has two primary purposes. First, and foremost, it should be used to help run your company with a more cohesive vision. It is your roadmap. By truly analysing your plan for marketing, sales, manufacturing, go-to-market strategies, you greatly improve your chances for success.
The second purpose of a business plan is to find investment or bank loans that will enable you to execute your vision. Most investors will be looking for fully developed and cohesive plan to make a decision to invest. Investors, financial institutions or other type of lenders would not invest in your company unless you can demonstrate that you have a roadmap to success. Investors usually want to mitigate their risk by seeing realistic forecast for when they would be reaping a return on their investment or capital.
