Brooklyn Central Library

Dweck Auditorium
Brooklyn, NY, 11238

Who should attend?
Potential business owners, start-ups and those in business who want to create/update their business plans or launch a new product or service.

Overview

A business plan is not “one size fits all”—it depends on your business strategy, goals and financial resources. As a rule, your small-business plan should be flexible and proceed through affordable steps. When crafting it, be sure to take into account customer acceptance, revenue and cash-flow growth, and the market for the product/service itself. An effective plan will include a timeline for implementing your business model. 

This workshop will give you the tools and background to:

  • Articulate your reasons for developing a business plan 
  • Develop achievable plans to determine and deliver value to your customers
  • Formulate your business model and business goals 
  • Project funding needs and financial results 
  • Communicate your business strategy to stakeholders (potential investors, partners and lenders) 
  • Develop strategies that encourage stakeholders to participate 

After the workshop, put this workshop to work by scheduling a free follow-up discussion with a SCORE NYC Mentor to get you started.
