Introduction to the “Design IQ Start Up Costs Planner”

Creating a new product and starting a new brand can be very complicated, and the costs that you might incur can be difficult to anticipate in advance.

Getting the product designed and made might seem to be the main costs – but in fact there are many other costs you will incur in setting up your brand.

Working out what all these Costs will be is just one thing – but also planning all the Tasks you need to undertake can be daunting.

So we have created a textile industry specific document that is totally customisable to help you do your planning. This document does not include specific costs as your’s will be different from other business’ – but will help you with the rational planning of Tasks from the concept and marketing stages to design, prototyping, manufacturing, marketing, sales and distribution.

With this Microsoft Excel document you can build the basis structure of the Costs and Tasks to create your Business Plan, and can help you prepare you to get investment.
