Event Details

Starting a Business
Creating a business plan and financial projections takes time, and can be overwhelming to get started. Where do you turn with questions? Will you need to apply for funding or find investors? What information will they require to make a decision?

Join us for a two-part Catalyst Speaker Series on starting your business.

Session 1: Create A Business plan, Wednesday August 28 - 9:30-11:30
Session 2: Create Financial Projections, Wednesday September 11 - 9:30-11:30
We ask participants to attend both sessions

This series will support small business owners and entrepreneurs, step-by-step, as they complete their business plan and cash flow projections. Experts from Union Bank & Trust and the Nebraska Business Development Center (NBDC) will be onsite to simplify the process and provide guidance to attendees.

Session 1: Create A Business Plan, Wednesday August 28 - 9:30-11:30
In this session, we will walk through each step of the business plan. Participants will have time to work on each section before moving on to the next. You will have the opportunity to ask questions, receive guidance, and turn feedback into action. You'll leave Session 1 with a draft of your business plan.

Session 2: Create Financial Projections, Wednesday September 11 - 9:30-11:30
Session two will build upon your business plan and help you complete the financial projections needed to get your business off the ground. We'll walk through cash flow projections, including how to project revenues, account for seasonality, estimate expenses, list out assumptions, etc. We'll advise you on key considerations for funding, whether you plan to borrow, find investors, or self-fund your business. Participants will walk away with a completed business plan, financial projections and a clear direction on financing options.  
Space is limited to 16 participants
