Business Plan Tips

How much technical information should you include?

Opinions expressed by Entrepreneur contributors are their own.

When writing your business plan, you might wonder how much detail to provide about the technology you employ. A plan for internal use only can tell all, but be careful not to let it reach the wrong hands. A plan for venture capitalists should contain fewer details, since they're often experts in their fields but can't guarantee confidentiality. Bankers care less about details, so a basic outline should do.
