eastern peidmont > Cover Page


This is the cover page for your business plan. Enter the name of your business, contact information, including address, email, fax, phone, website, and date your plan was prepared. You may also want to include a graphic image or photo representing your business. Make the business name the most prominent feature and otherwise, keep the page relatively clean – lots of white space. This is a good place for a logo.

The page may also include a “title”. The title might say “Business Plan”, or it might briefly describe the purpose of your business plan.
