Canada Start-Up Visa Business Plan
Canada’s Start-up Visa Program targets immigrant entrepreneurs with the skills and potential to build businesses in Canada that are innovative, can create jobs for Canadians and can compete on a global scale.
If you have an innovative and competitive business idea, you can try to get support for your idea from a designated organization to become eligible for the SUV program.
Start-Up Business Plan
Before you can apply for a Start-Up Visa, you need a business plan to pitch your idea to designated organizations for the Start-Up Visa program. A strong business plan is critical to ensure the designated organization is compelled to support your start-up business venture.
Business Plan Outline
A start-up business plan generally includes a few key components, such as a business overview, a sales and marketing plan, an operating plan, a human resources plan, an action plan, and a financial plan. The main categories included in a business plan are:
