Creating a Quick Business Plan in Three Hours (Online) -C0055 

You have a great business idea, but what’s the next step in starting the business? Join other entrepreneurs in this hands-on workshop in which you will first write your “Unique Value Statement” that concisely describes your product or service and its value. Then using the “Lean Canvas,” write a draft one-page business plan – all in three hours!

Registration Fee: $50

Join us and other entrepreneurs in this hands-on workshop where you will write your “Unique Value Statement” for your new product or service.  This is a concise description of your product or service and explains the unique value your product or service provides to your customers.  As part of the workshop, participants will receive real-time feedback from a SCORE mentor to help them fine-tune their Value Statement.

In the second part of the workshop, you will use the “Lean Canvas” to begin the process of turning your product/service into a business.  In this interactive session, you use the canvas to help guide you in expanding the information in the Unique Value Statement by capturing key ideas, concepts, and strategies about your business in the canvas.  This creates a basic framework that you can use to complete YOUR full, detailed business plan.

Bring your laptop, a pencil or a pen as the goal of this workshop is for all participants to leave with a draft of their “Unique Value Statement” and “Lean Canvas.”

Listen to what others who have attended this workshop have to say about the instructors and the program:

  • I was a great help to have time to work on a plan and get direct feedback from the instructor!
  • The hands approach of writing my lean canvas in-class really helped me think in detail about my business. 
  • Really helps simplify the planning process for me! 
  • Gave me a structured approach to think through my business. 
  • It was a very positive environment; the instructor and other students provided examples on how to improve my plans.
