ICUBE Side Session V. The Business Plan
Nov 22 @ 6:00 pm – 7:30 pm

Icube Side Session A business plan stands as a content-heavy document that same would say is ‘living’. The real value of creating a business plan is not in having the finished product in hand; rather, the value lies in the process of researching and thinking about your business in a systematic way. The act of planning helps you to think things through thoroughly, research facts and trends, and take a critical look at your own ideas and concepts. Developing a business plan will take time, but it will also minimize costly – and perhaps disastrous -mistakes over the long-term.

Workshop breakdown:

A.) Essentials of a Business Plan
B.) Things to Avoid When Creating a Business Plan

 

Main goal of this workshop:

  • This workshop will ultimately explain how to create a business plan, what elements of the plan are important, and why it is necessary.

 

What you’ll learn:

  • Develop a framework and gain an understanding of business essentials
  • Understand when to use either a business model canvas, or a business plan
