You have written all of the required sections of your business plan. Now is the time for you to review all of them and to write your executive summary. Although it is the first section of your plan, it should be the last section that you write. Keep in mind that it may be the only section of your plan that people read. As a result, it must be clear, concise, and convincing. The executive summary is the best tool in your business plan for selling your concept. Use the article, Writing an Executive Summary That Means Business as a basic guideline for your summary. Focus on the following main components:

  • Establish the need or problem. 
  • Recommend the solution, and explain its value. 
  • Provide substantiation.
