Planning & advice

Expansion of your business is an exciting time, which is why you need to make sure everything is planned in advance so you can enjoy the rewarding process.

Along with a clear business plan, which will demonstrate your product or service and its competitive advantage, you’ll need to create a reliable business strategy for strong and continual development.

You can find several supportive programmes to help you define your business plan here.

If you choose to undergo the planning process on your own, you’ll need to conduct some substantial research into how to create a feasible business plan, which you will then present to investors. When writing a business plan you will need to consider the start-up costs, as well as set aside a certain amount of money for unforeseen charges.

The East of England Regional Growth Loan Scheme, supported by the Department for Business, Innovation, and Skills, is available to offer a comprehensive support programme to businesses based in the region. The criteria for loan application can be found here.

Whichever route you choose, both long and short-term plans are vital. Being successful in your start up means envisioning a positive future, wherein the potential for mergers, expansion, and development lies.
