Starting a spin-off/start-up

How do write a strategic business plan?

A successful start-up starts with a strategic business plan in which you focus on you and your idea for a start-up, your target audience, the market demand, the team arrangement, the activities for marketing and the financing of your activities. Writing a business plan is perhaps not the most exciting part of marketing your research and it is time consuming. However, it also forces you to be pro-active when it comes to thinking about your company’s future. Besides, a business plan often is a requisite in terms of financing. Be smart and invest some of your time in drawing up a Business Model Canvas. This seemingly simple A4 piece of paper helps you to be objective about your start-up and to make well-founded decisions. Now ánd in the future.
