Steps to Starting a Business

Starting a business requires planning and preparation; a host of resources are available for entrepreneurs seeking general information.


Before you embark on your new business venture, it's a good idea to determine whether you have the right personality to start a business. To assist you with this, we have provided some links to help you decide whether entrepreneurship makes sense for you.

Write a Business Plan

A business plan articulates what a business is, where it is going, and how an entrepreneur wants to take it there. A business plan will likely include a summary, a company description, a marketing plan, an operations plan, and management and organization information. A business plan is critical - without a business plan, a
business may fail. Most banks require a business plan prior to lending.
