Our business plan

You can find many templates of business plans online, all of which are similar to each other and therefore are vague and less user-friendly.

We have made our business plan easy and clear with the understanding that not everyone has a background in finance, economics, law, etc.

We guide you through all the parameters of the business plan, so you are ready to run a business. If there are areas where you are in doubt, you are more than welcome to contact our coaches in the field.

Our business plan has been prepared in collaboration with 25 business angles, who have been asked the following questions:
