How to develop a killer business plan [Thread] #BankerX
1. Keep it simple

“I didn't have time to write you a short letter, so I wrote you a long one" - Mark Twain

The ability to refine an idea & distill down a strategy into just a few words takes time. Throwing down buzzwords is easy, finding clarity is difficult.

Stick to one page
2. Business Model Canvas

A graduate business school favourite & one of the most powerful business plan templates out there.

Highly adaptable to any industry, clearly shows trade-offs & is designed for all elements to align to the overall vision.
