Date & Time: TBA

Registration: $150*

* Your registration includes a copy of our $97 guide, How to Write a Business Plan to Secure Financing and
Launch Your Entrepreneurial Journey, a light dinner and much more
Working on your business plan? Confused about where to start – or how to finish? Writing a business plan is about much more than filling in a template. To do it well and get that business loan, you need to see your business objectively and understand how to make the best decisions for your new company. Every part of your business affects all the other parts, and business planning rarely happens in a linear fashion – so why are you trying to write your business plan that way?
We’ll show you how to write a business plan – and offer you free support and resources for your business

Join us in your city for three and a half hours of learning and inspiration, where we’ll help you learn to think like a business owner and answer the tough questions about your business – so you can confidently write your business plan and use it to get the financing you need to start or grow your business. We’ll cover five big topics that you need to know inside and out to be able to write a business plan to wow the banks. These topics are:

  • The People
  • The Industry
  • The Customers
  • The Money
  • The Format


When you understand these five elements and how they fit together, you’ll be well prepared to write your own business plan and save thousands on consulting fees.

We’ll show you how to tackle the task of writing a business plan and make it easy to understand, simple to complete, and ready for the banks to evaluate. During the workshop, we’ll explain all of the essential elements of a business plan and why they need to be there, as well as get you started on some exercises to help you write your plan. By the time you leave, you’ll have a great start on your business plan and be that much closer to launching your dream company.

Once you register, we’ll add you to our email list and you’ll receive your copy of How to Write a Business Plan to Launch Your Entrepreneurial Journey (a $97 value). Before the workshop we’ll send you a little “homework” – just a few questions to help us make sure we give you the information you really need to launch and grow your business.

  • An e-copy of How to Write a Business Plan to Secure Financing and Launch Your Entrepreneurial Journey
