This section should include a high-level look at how all of the different elements of your business fit together. The company description section should include information about the nature of your business, as well as list the primary factors that you believe will make your business a success.
When defining the nature of your business (or why you’re in business), be sure to list the marketplace needs that you are trying to satisfy; include the ways in which you plan to satisfy these needs using your products or services. Finally, list the specific individuals and/or organizations that you have identified as having these needs.
Primary success factors might include a superior ability to satisfy your customers’ needs, highly efficient methods of delivering your product or service, outstanding personnel, or a key location. Each of these would give your business a competitive advantage.
