A solid business plan is a foundational piece to a successful business, regardless of where you are in the business lifecycle. If you are seeking to rebuild & reboot your business from the economic impact of COVID-19 or seeking to navigate the new economy as a startup, a business plan is a tool you’ll want in your toolbox. Building a plan identifies specific action steps to move a business forward, creates short-and long-term strategies, and may uncover gaps that should be bridged to reach your business objectives. In this bootcamp, the content is delivered in bite-sized pieces to introduce the major components for writing a business plan through an interactive approach and live Q&A. Best practices for business planning include identifying the right content, research, and presentation format. We will introduce techniques for addressing and planning specific elements in a business plan related to food business operations and how to incorporate relevant topics such as food production, food packaging, food safety, and customer and vendor management into a comprehensive business plan. We will demonstrate how to build a business plan using the specialized software, LivePlan, and participants receive a 30-day license to access to the software. Plans may be downloaded upon completion. LivePlan software provides an online template for entrepreneurs to input their plan content in a format that meets the scrutiny for the loan application process by including the required sections for SBA loans.
