Business Planning

Writing a business plan can seem like a daunting task, and it can be easily overlooked when you know your product or service inside-out. It is, however, a crucial part of developing not only your business idea but defining your objectives and keeping you on-track.

A solid business plan is also a necessity for acquiring most forms of funding or investment. It is your road map to success, and once you get started you will realise that putting one together is not as difficult as it seems. This preparation will help you to avoid future pitfalls, ultimately saving you time and money.

How we can help:

  • Somerset Start-up Support Package

We are currently working with the Somerset local authorities to offer a Start-up Support Package to businesses based in Somerset. The support is delivered as an array of easily-digestible workshops by specialists which each cover a different area of your business to ensure that you don’t miss any of the important stuff, such as marketing, business planning and finance. Businesses also have access to one-to-one sessions. Find out more here. 

 Please note, to book onto these workshops and one-to-one sessions, you must be a resident in Somerset, or your business must have a registered Company’s House address in Somerset (this does not include North Somerset).
