The content: four steps to a robust business plan
Each subject builds on the last, laying the foundations for a robust and informed business plan.
1. Business Models & The Lean Canvas
You'll generate ideas through fun and challenging creative techniques, and get practice creating a robust business model using the Lean Canvas tool.
2. Market Research and Positioning
Learn about market positioning and market research methodologies through interactive group exercises, and get the resources you need to create your own qualitative research plan.
3. Business Plan & Financial Forecasting
Through case studies, you'll build business offerings and translate research into financial variables. You'll get a flexible Excel tool to automatically create financial forecasts for your business.
4. Minimum Viable Product
