Are you thinking about starting up your own business? Great idea! Now you have to plan your project.
A business plan is a written document that is used as a guide to managing future and/or established businesses. It defines the objectives of the business and suggests steps towards reaching them. A business plan provides information on your business to financial institutions and investors, and helps lend credibility to your project.
We invite you to take a look at the business plan we have developed with our regional partners in the Haut-Saint-François.
