We decided to introduce Zimbabwe business plans after noting that many Zimbabweans were venturing into businesses without a full understanding of the industry, market, how to run the businesses, the risks involved, profitability of the businesses and the costs involved, leading to a high failure rate of the start-ups.

Our business plans will make it easier for you to launch and run a business successfully, fully knowing what you are going into, and what’s needed to succeed in the business. It will be easier to plan and budget as the business plans will lay out all the costs involved in setting up and running the business. They are designed uniquely for the Zimbabwean market.

Uses of the Business Plans (PDF, Word And Excel)

These business plans can be used for many purposes including:

  • Raising capital from investors/friends/relatives
  • Applying for a bank loan
  • Start-up guide to launch your business
  • As a project proposal
  • Assessing profitability of the business
  • Finding a business partner
  • Assessing the initial start-up costs so that you know how much to save
  • Manual for current business owners to help in business and strategy formulation

Contents of the Business Plans (PDF, Word And Excel)

All our pre-written plans include, but not limited to:

  • Market Analysis
  • Industry Analysis
  • Automated Financial Statements (monthly cash flow projections, income statements, cash flow statements, balance sheets, break even analysis, loan repayment calculations, start-up costs)

All our agriculture pre-written business plans include technical aspects of how to keep and rear the animals. They also include a mini-directory with contacts which will prove to be helpful in launching and running the business. E.g. for pigs we will tell you where to buy the breeding stock, feeds e.t.c. and we will provide the contact details of the companies.
