Write up a business plan

You're about to make one of your biggest dreams a reality by starting or expanding your own business. But before you do, you need to put together a business plan. It will help you plan your approach, put your ideas on paper and identify your options. It will also make it easier to find business partners, investors and lenders.

Desjardins has created an interactive business plan just for you. Since every entrepreneur is unique, you can use it to put together your very own personalized business plan. We suggest completing each section in order, but feel free to move sections around or add sections as needed. It's your business idea. Desjardins is there to help.

Throughout this process, you can:

  • think through your plans in greater detail with specially-designed questions
  • get clarification on concepts in featured information capsules
  • get practical advice
  • click on links to additional resources
  • view tip sheets

Discover the interactive business plan.
