Training Series
  • October Business Plan Bootcamp (10/6/22 – 12/1/22)

    Business Plan Bootcamp is an 8-week accelerator program designed to take participants through the entire journey of writing a full business plan. A well-written business plan outlines the primary purpose of a business, designs plans for the future, identifies a unique value proposition, and lays out a financial roadmap to success. With a strong business plan, you can run a successful business, obtain bank financing, find the right employees, and attract investors.

    Over the 8-week Business Plan Bootcamp, participants will use LivePlan (complete business planning software), attend 4 mandatory teaching sessions, and receive 4 one-on-one coaching sessions. Upon completion of the program participants will have a full business plan as well as a pitch deck to quickly communicate their business ideas to potential clients and investors.

    If accepted into the program, participants will receive free access to LivePlan software for 3 months and have a chance to win up to $500 in funding during a final pitch competition.

    The deadline to apply is 9/23/22.
