The Small Business Association (SBA) states that a Business Plan is “an essential roadmap for business success.” This plan defines the present and projects the future by outlining a plan for growth.
A company business plan might include an Executive Summary, (this should “stand alone” as a document), Company Description, Market Analysis, Organization and Management, Services or Products offered, Marketing and Sales data, and Funding and Financial Projections.
A FIRST team is like a business, with revenues, expenses, stakeholders, goals, objectives, risks, and plans for the future. FIRST teams have products.
The FIRST Guidelines for a Business Plan to support the Entrepreneurship are available on the FIRST website under the Awards section.
