How should my business plan LOOK?

So my business plan is done and I`m ready to submit it to a few investors.The question is this, should I have made it look like it was designed and layed out, or just submit it as a document? Does it need to look like a book, bound and with a cover, or is it best to just bring the white paper with a simple cover page?

    Hello Collin,

    Its going to depend a bit on the audience and your business.  For
    example the BP may be more creative with art work if you are in a
    creative business field.  However you can`t go wrong with the "degigned
    and layout" format.  I`ve always been partial to the IPO/Perspectus and
    Annual Report format.  Look at the layout of your favourite public
    company or go to EDGAR for ideas.

    Good luck!

    You need to have a SWOT analysis, Cash Flow Plan and also the targeted break even point.
