MOBI, or My Own Business Institute, is part of Santa Clara University's Center for Innovation and Entrepreneurship.
They offer a business plan template consisting of 15 sections that include the business profile, licenses/permits and location. MOBI provides helpful suggestions for how to fill in each section as well who should review it.
You'll find templates for general businesses as well as specific templates for restaurants, bakeries, hotels, startups, coffee shops and salons.
Once you sign up for the free trial, you can customize it to fit your business needs by adding photos, pricing tables, videos and a theme that fits your branding.
The website also breaks down each section and provides instructions on how to download and fill in the template.
Bplans' investor-approved business plan template has been used by Princeton University and Babson College to teach entrepreneurs how to start a business.
Legaltemplates' free business plan template is available for download, and once you complete it, you simply print it out.
You can also download a filled-in version to use as a reference.
Business plans are used by entrepreneurs to secure funding for their business idea or by small business owners looking to refine their business strategy.
Regardless of the purpose, having templates at the ready can be helpful.
