Business Plans That Stand Out

Tuesday Dec. 4, 2018
9 a.m.-4 p.m.
Pre-registration at 8:30 a.m.

Today, business plans  whether they are for a program or a social enterprise  are becoming a must-have in the nonprofit sector instead of something that's just nice to have. A well-written plan can make the difference in securing the necessary funding and interest.

This session will break down the process into simple and easy-to-follow steps for you to right-size a business plan for your needs AND your organization, program or social enterprise. It will include an in-depth discussion of the best process and outline to follow as well as how to stand out from the crowd.

This class is one of our longstanding favorites. Past participants have called it a "mini-MBA" because it covers a wide range of important business topics.

At the conclusion of this workshop, participants will be able to:
  • Differentiate between needs and requirements for a business prospectus, business canvas and business plan.
  • Use a step-by-step process to develop and write a business plan.
  • Make their organization's business plan/prospectus stand out.

Early Bird Nonprofit Rate (through Nov. 20, 2018): $45
Nonprofit rate (after Nov. 20, 2018): $55 
Market rate (applies to for-profit agencies): $300 per person (Rates include breakfast and lunch)
