About The Course - 9 Week Business Plan Workshop

About The Course

The 9-week Business Plan Workshop is designed to impart a deeper understanding of your industry, your company and yourself. It allows you to think about the challenges that could come up in the entrepreneurial process so that you can make informed decisions that will maximize successful outcomes.

We’ve developed this workshop for the “on-the-go professional.” Our curriculum is catered to the modern entrepreneur, enabling you to:

  • Refine your pitch skills: pitch your business plan to a professional panel and receive feedback, enabling you to present your plan successfully to financial institutions, investors, and your internal team.
  • Gain access to a best-in-class online business plan platform: Our workshops provide access to LivePlan, an online business plan development platform, providing participants with the ability to easily create, store, and share their plans with instructors for feedback.
  • Gain hands-on resources: Participants receive a workbook crafted to walk you through each step of developing a successful business plan, and can be utilized after the workshop for refinements and enhancements to your plan.
