A business plan is a formal statement of business goals, reasons they are attainable, and plans for reaching them. It may also contain background information about the organization or team attempting to reach those goals.
The Importance : An Invention Business Plan is an effective communication tool for providing a clear and tangible description of your invention while conveying its viability and value. It tells a detailed story about your invention including what it is, how it works and why your invention is a believable business opportunity. It can generally be described as an organized all-in-one depository of everything you know or have learned about your invention. It includes every angle about your invention so as to be used as a reference point for the development and/or submission of audience specific requests. Having a broad audience scope allows it to be used as a collection of information which can then be modified or adjusted according to the audience in which it serves.

In my previous article, I talked about how you can plan your business startup. I defined a business plan as a written description of the future of your business. This is a document that indicates what you intend to do and how you intend to do it. I further explained that if all you have is a paragraph on the back of an envelope describing your business strategy, you have written a plan, or at least the beginning of a plan.
