How to Write a Company Overview
Your team matters just as much as your great business idea.
A company overview (also known as company information or a company summary) is an essential part of a business plan. It’s an overview of the most important points about your company—your history, management team, location, mission statement and legal structure. It usually appears after the executive summary in your business plan.
This is typically the shortest chapter of a business plan document, but that doesn’t reduce its importance. If you’re presenting this plan to people outside of your company, this is your opportunity to introduce yourself and your business, and you are going to want to put your best foot forward.
Imagine that the person reading your business plan document has never heard of you, and doesn’t know anything about your business.
What should be their takeaway? What do they need to remember about you and your company?
