Entrepreneurial Business Plan Part F:
The purpose of this assignment is to determine the startup cost of the firm, discuss new funding sources for the firm and a discussion of key financial and accounting ratios. To do this, students will integrate lessons learned from the course reading assignments, conduct outside research, and apply their critical thinking skills to properly estimate the various costs needed to start their firm. (CLO’s 1, 4, and 8)
1. Your paper should meet all APA (6th Ed.) writing standards.
2. The Change Matrix must be placed immediately following the Title Page.
3. Beginning in Wk. 2 – Instructor’s feedback, recommendations, and corrections must be addressed and detailed on the change matrix page.
4. Include a faith integration component – The faith integration component should be present throughout your business plan (e.g., not just a paragraph or mention of faith at the end of each section). In other words, how does your faith or world view influence your firm?

Feedback that should be implemented in the Change Matrix:
“Just as in Wk. 1, I reviewed your paper using the Review feature within Word. I encourage you to take a look at each of the comments I posted directly on your paper.
Your final paper is due soon. In order to maximize your point opportunity, be sure to:
1. During the past several weeks, I intentionally provided several notes, comments, recommendations, or suggestions. Each of these comments was made to help you improve your paper. I, therefore, encourage you to review each of these notes (dating back to Wk. 1) and make all the necessary corrections.
2. Review the final rubric – both your final paper and presentation should meet each of the mentioned dimensions
3. Throughout this course I have stressed the importance of writing according to the guidelines set by APA – I encourage you to ensure:
1. The table of contents is properly working
2. All Headers are properly formatted
3. All in-text citations and references are properly formatted
4. Your writing uses proper grammar and sentence structure.”
I have also attached the annotated PDF of last week’s paper. Please go through the paper and look at all the instructor’s comments and make appropriate changes, noting them in the Change Matrix.
