BDC Business plan templates let you prepare a professional business plan - a necessity when seeking financing for your project.
The plans are offered free, on an as-is basis, and technical assistance is not provided. Certain cells in the documents are locked to preserve their integrity and passwords are not distributed. The plans contain macros, but are guaranteed safe from viruses and are designed to work with Office 97 and greater.
Blank templates to complete:
The plan contains 2 sections with a glossary and a user guide to help you along the way. Completing both sections will take quite some time, especially if you're starting a business. You may need assistance from your accountant for the financial section
To ensure that the documents are fully functional, they must be downloaded to your hard drive and opened with Word and Excel. To do so, right-click the links and select Save Target As… (or Save Link As…).
These are provided only as an example to provide you with ideas. Use the templates above to create your own business plan. (You will need Adobe Acrobat Reader to open these files.)
