Develop a Winning Business Plan
A Business Plan is an important document for raising start-up capital, helping you to monitor progress and achieving your goals. When done correctly, it is a "living" document and tool that will help you manage the business beyond start-up. We will help you prepare a realistic plan that will document your vision, goals and strategy. No business should be started or maintained without a Plan. The key is an understanding of what should be included and how to capture the reader's interest in a concise but interesting way. Having a difficult time with the financial section? Your presenter will help you understand the three financial statements and how they relate to risk and performance. He will take the mystery out of forecasting.
