A business plan usually can take several weeks or months (and sometimes even a few tears – yes, tears!) to complete.

But the old way isn’t the only way. The Business Model Canvas class will help to you to quickly develop a portable, one-page business plan structured to validate your business model, prioritize where to start and understand the key metrics that will keep your business on track.

When you attend this SBDC-FGCU workshop, you will quickly develop and leave with the majority of your business plan DONE. You will capture the essence of your company and shortcut your way to more probable success:

Here’s what the workshop will do for you:

  • Help you determine and focuses on your unfair advantage, that can help to win the market
  • Create a plan that is entrepreneur-focused and serves your business vs. a lender-focused that might never get read
  • Assess your revenue streams and how to capitalize on them for better financial grounding
  • Understand who to market to first, because your ideal customer is the life force of your company

It’s the best business plan hack of the decade — a fresh, new way of migrating through the scope, design and feasibility of your business. The FGCU team will provide you with the most powerful tool you need to start the business of your dreams —  or pursue a more monetizable goal).

During this workshop, the FGCU team will provide you with resource documents, specific industry research and a plethora of tools individually tailored for your business.

Speakers will include Dorothy Browning, a business development consultant.

Be sure to email the team at sbdc@fgcu.edu with your proposed business type, location, and other pertinent details to help them pull industry reports needed for this workshop. Tell the team about the type business you are considering starting (or have started) and your thoughts on the initial location. Please specify if you’re going to be an online business. The team needs this information so they can provide resource and research documents to you during class for the hands-on exercises.
