One of the cool things about the SCORE business plan template is that once you've completed it, you can meet with a SCORE mentor for expert advice in business planning.
SCORE offers options for startups and established businesses, and you'll find plans for business planning, financing, marketing, etc., if you're looking to implement one of those areas into your business.
MOBI, or My Own Business Institute, is part of Santa Clara University's Center for Innovation and Entrepreneurship.

The eight-chapter template explains what information needs to go in each section and why.
