Business Plan Archive

Business plans are unique documents-they are filled with dreams, often unrealistic, as well as blueprints on how companies intend to achieve those dreams. Dot-com BPs are especially interesting, given harsh recent events, and that is why they are being collected in an archive compiled by Webmergers.com and the University of Maryland’s Robert H. Smith School of Business, working with the Center for History and New Media at George Mason University. The documents will ultimately be deposited in the Archives and Manuscript Library at the University of Maryland, College Park, to the benefit of future entrepreneurs and researchers. Users will have “access to learn from this remarkable period of technological and organizational creativity.” Currently, there isn’t much to see on the site, although Webmergers.com has contributed original content detailing the dot-com shakeout (see the “What We Can Learn” section).
