The Business Venture Plan is an essential part of planning for the success of a Venture. Each planning area is relevant even if the primary study major differs from the School of Business. Many professions reflect the individual’s passion, such as dentists, hair stylists, environmental scientists, attorneys, and lobbyists. The Business Venture Plan is relevant to any venture that involves structure to accomplish organizational goals. All organizations must manage money, legal requirements, marketing, and social responsibilities. The Business Venture Plan helps to plan for the basic needs of an organization – regardless of the passion.
