Exercise 3 : Setting up your business


After carefully considering your options, you've decided you want to start your own business.

The best place to start is by writing a solid business plan.

The purpose of this exercise is to get you to consider all aspects of the creation and development of your business. By taking a thorough approach from the start, your plan will be clearer and more concrete and more likely to attract investors.

Please note: we offer a generic model that can be adapted to suit your needs.


At the end of this exercise, you should be able to:

  • Write an executive summary
  • Clearly define your offer
  • Analyse your market and determine your USP (unique selling point)
  • Put together a strategy and define your operational objectives
  • Cover the legal, tax and financial aspects of your business
  • Write a marketing strategy
  • Define your staffing needs


This exercise is structured in a way that allows you to reflect and make notes.  Put as much detail as you want in the spaces provided.
