Project Description:

students will be expected to put together a financial plan based on either a real small business, or a fictitious one (data may be supplied by instructor).

while each plan is unique depending on the business sector, location, stage of development, etc., all banker and/or investor presentable business plans, as well as plans for internal use, should include the following:

executive summary (1-2 pages - this always gets read)
