  • A feasibility study, demonstrating the viability and practicability of the business idea.
  • A gap analysis, demonstrating a potential market sector for your business idea.
  • A hypothetical SWOT analysis, based on your current understanding of the market.
  • A summary of the personal attributes necessary for the business opportunity, and a statement of how you intend to meet the required personal attributes.
  • A summary of the potential risks faced by this business venture, and a statement outlining how you could minimise these risks.

Your report may take the form of a paper or a presentation. You may like to discuss such requirements with your trainer.
