Business Planning Tools
May 4 @ 1:00 pm - 4:00 pm CDT
Entrepreneurs just starting, existing businesses adding products or services, or industries undergoing significant change can all use easy visual tools to assist in planning. This IN-PERSON class introduces tools which help:
- define why you want to go into business
- why you’re in business
- what customer problems you are trying to solve.
You can then build a business plan for funding, a marketing plan, a product development plan, an operating/management plan, etc.
The Value Proposition Canvas and Business Model Canvas (Alex Osterwalder, Strategyzer) are easy to use, one page visual tools which bring clarity to your business planning.
