How to Write a Business Plan

BBC Business’ How to Write a Business Plan has some sound advice for that basic business plan. However, being written by a multi-national corporation, I had an inkling that it wasn’t going to be very—I hate saying this—Web 2.0, so I went to the usual suspects.

This Ask Y Combinator thread has some good advice and further resources. I was expecting this:

Keep working on your product, get a user base, and worry later about verbalizing the specifics of your projected market share and what day exactly you plan to go cash flow positive.

Instead the comment got debunked numerous times.

Extra-special resources include: Sequoia Capital’s ‘Ideas’ and Paul Graham (of Y Combinator) on Viaweb’s first business plan.
