Business Plan Bootcamp
This workshop is for all entrepreneurs and intrapreneurs who wish to avoid wasting time, effort and money while establishing and operating their new venture, regardless of whether you intend to self-fund or seek outside capital to grow your business.

• HOW to develop the Business Plan
> Developing reasonable future scenarios
> Forecasting Sales, Productivity and Financial
> Organizing Business Plan elements
> Determining the details—Making decisions in uncertainty
> Weighing Full Disclosure vs. TMI (“Too Much
> Ensuring quality
• WHERE and WHEN to share the Business Plan (and how to protect it)
