The Startup Lunch & Learn: The Startup Business Plan
From the Sierra SBDC & the Placer Business Resource Center: The Startup Lunch and Learn Series features three, fast-paced workshops that cover the most important three topics for aspiring and new entrepreneurs to know. The Startup Lunch and Learn series will introduce new and existing entrepreneurs to essential information for business planning, financial management and funding.
Session One: The Startup Business Plan – The old idea of a 25-page written business plan does not work in today’s dynamic startup environment. Entrepreneurs don’t have the time to write it and funders don’t have the time to read it. Today’s entrepreneurs need a way to create a roadmap for their business that is quick, efficient and effective. One that provides a solid roadmap for the future for themselves and potential funders. The Startup Business Plan workshop will introduce entrepreneurs to a new way of business planning – one that focuses on identifying the key areas that need to be planned in order to create a successful business. In this workshop you’ll learn about the importance of business planning, understand the most critical topics to address in a business plan and see best of class examples of great startup plans.
