You’re seeking a loan from a bank or potential investors and you need to supply them with a written business plan. Or you just want to ensure you’ve covered all your bases before you launch a new business with your own money. This workshop will allow you to create a detailed business plan document which will satisfy all your needs!!


Planning is the key to business success, and it all comes together in a detailed business plan.    This 3-hour workshop is designed to give you, the business owner, the skills and know-how needed to write a successful and detailed business plan, which will cover these main topics:

  • Describing your product or service
  • Describing your product pricing, packaging and distribution
  • Describing your marketing plan
  • Describing your business operations
  • Describing organization structure and management structure

Lastly, you’ll put all this information together into a financial plan that will provide you and other the information they need.  You’ll know the amount of startup funding needed.  You be able to project sales and create forecasted profit and loss statements and plan your cash flow.  Creating effective financial information can make or break a loan application, so this workshop is particularly valuable to anyone seeking outside funding for their business.
