How to start a business in Northern Ireland
Get help to develop a business plan through your local council
Your council will assist you with developing a business plan. A business plan is a written document that describes your business. It covers objectives, strategies, sales, marketing and financial forecasts.
Through the Go For It programme your local council will match you with the business adviser in your area for one-to-one mentoring and support to develop your business plan.
A business plan helps you to:
- clarify your business idea
- spot potential problems
- set out your goals
- measure your progress
- access finance to start and grow your business
