Students for Students Online Brokerage
(SFS AG Brokers)
The following material is a business plan for a start-up of an online brokerage business. It is not based on real company data. The name of the company, the co-owners, the contact information data are invented by the authors.
There is a lot of information in the literature about what one needs to do when starting an online brokering business. One can also find information about what a business plan is and how to prepare it. This project is an attempt for a model of a business plan of a start-up company in the online brokering business, based on the literature and the experience of the authors.
The authors found the most difficult the financial part of the plan. It is a problem to project the sales when the business is in the initial stage. Because of its nature the business plan is under continual development. This project focuses only on the first year of the business with some projections for a further-years period.
Particularly useful for the project was the book: "Der Businessplan: Geschäftspläne profesionell erstellen / Mit Checklisten und Fallbeispielen" by Anna Nagl (2005) and the Information for business opening published by Bundesregierung Deutschland.
