What is a small business?

The Office of Advocacy defines a small business as an independent business having fewer than 500 employees. 

A size standard, which is usually stated in number of employees or average annual receipts, represents the largest size that a business (including its subsidiaries and affiliates) may be to remain classified as a small business for SBA and federal contracting programs. The definition of “small” varies by industry.

Do I need a Business Plan to start a business?

A good business plan guides you through each stage of starting and managing your business. Your business plan can be your roadmap and help you to structure, run, and grow your new startup.

It’s best to think through the key elements of your business to save yourself time and money. Business plans can help you get funding or bring on new business partners. Investors want to feel confident in the business and know they will see a return on their investment. Your business plan is the tool you’ll use to convince people that working with you and investing in the company is a smart choice.
