In addition, the written paper should have sections on the degree of the existing competition and the characteristics of the rival producers/organizations; the characteristics of the buyers and the potential demand for the product; and the strategy of the start-up business for pricing with regards to elasticity, production and maintaining it's competitive advantage. Finally, a critical analysis of the findings and conclusion and the implications for the start-up business need to be addressed in the paper.

The specific components of the proposed start up business should include:
- Product description
- Scope of the market
