About the Event
Learn the essential elements for preparing a plan for business success by identifying content and format for a business plan--including sources of information to aid in its development. You should understand that a business plan is a valuable internal tool, even when not required for the benefit of investors or loan officers.
A business plan may force you to think about your idea in new ways and to question the validity of your product/service target markets.
