· the Society in which you operate.

Finance Plan (2-3 Pages)

The Finance Plan will consist of a set of tables that show:

While the Business Plan is important, all is lost if you run out of cash.

The tables or statements required are:

Business Summary (2-3 Pages)

This is an essential document forming part of the Business Plan. If you have already submitted it, you may skip it.

It should be no more than two pages and include what you can cover in a five minute interview. It should essentially highlight the unique characteristics of your product, customers, the people running the business and what the future holds for the business.
