Ok since everyone on here is always coming on asking if they can get a sample, here is a solution: MAKE YOUR OWN!

-How you devised your business idea
-You can always add different stuff!

3. Marketing Strategies
-Your market size and structure
-Your markets growth prospects, trends and sales potential
-Where and how you got your market research info
-The info youll use to get paying customers

4. Competitive Analysis
-Who your competitors are
-Their strengths and weaknesses
-The strategies that give your company an advantage
-Any special weakness among the competition that you can exploit

5. Development Plan
-Where is your company going
-How do you plan to grow

6. Operations And Management
-Your qualifications and those of partners
-Your management teams responsibilitys

7. Financials
