Writing a Business Plan (In-Person)
Presented in Partnership with Trenton Downtown Association
along with the Mercer County Office of Economic Development
Developing a business plan is one of the most important challenges you will face as an entrepreneur. The process of developing a good business plan requires an understanding and appreciation for the tools required to do it right.
This in-person workshop was developed to guide you through that process and give you a hands-on systematic way to develop an outline, investigate and evaluate the resources and create a draft of your own business plan. In this workshop, we’ll show you how to:
- Research and analyze the individual components needed for a business plan
- Apply skills to create a business plan for different audiences, including investors and banks
- Explain the purpose and future of your business in easy to understand terms
- Describe your marketing, sales, and planning strategies and more
Learn how your finished plan should look in this workshop!
