Course Description

Seize the day! Experts suggest that today’s climate may offer entrepreneurs an exceptional opportunity to start new companies or ventures. Learn and apply fundamental principles and best practices to create your blueprint for success.

Come with your ideas and use class time and exercises completed on your own to build the components of your business plan -- including finance and accounting, product phasing and pricing, distribution channels, marketing, and engaging with advisors, mentors, and more. You will come away with the insights to prepare a business plan document that describes your business strategy, start-up tactics and operational pro forma unique to your proposition.
