The question, “Who uses a business plan?” seems like an easy question to answer, but the answer is more complex than appears at first glance. One of the most common answers is that a new business startup needs to go through the planning process to secure funding from angel investors, equity investors, or venture capitalists, or to get approval for a bank loan. While that is true, the business plan is not the same thing as a request for funding. It has a more comprehensive role in getting a business started or expanded with the highest chance of success.
