Download the Virgin StartUp business plan template

Turn your idea into a reality by completing the Virgin StartUp business plan. We’ve created what we believe is the perfect business plan template and you can download it for free here.

This template is easy to complete and is broken down into simple sections that each comes with a video to help you understand exactly what’s required. By completing this plan you validate your business idea and have an investor ready business plan: that means it can be used to apply for Virgin StartUp loan, a bank loan or even shown to angel or VC investors.

At Virgin StartUp we’re experts on business plans – approving over £30m of Start Up Loans to more than 2,000 entrepreneurs means we have seen thousands of plans. After seeing so many, and realising that the process can be unclear and needlessly complicated we decided to create a template better than the others out there. A template that makes writing a business plan simple, that ensures you don’t leave anything out, and which helps you get everything ordered and easy to understand.

We give this plan to all our Virgin StartUp loan recipients – and now we’re giving it to anyone who wants it, regardless of whether you’re applying for a loan from us. It’s the first step to getting your dream on the road.
