Congratulations on making the very exciting decision to build a mission-driven company! The importance of having a solid foundation from the beginning can't be understated. Having a robust modern business plan is one of the most important first steps in setting up your business for long-term success. In most cases, writing a 20-page business plan is a waste of time and is extremely overwhelming. During this workshop, we'll work you through a modern lean business plan step by step. You'll get an opportunity to ask questions, share ideas with other purpose-driven entrepreneurs, and get valuable feedback. Another extremely important step in launching a business successfully is making sure that you are financially prepared. Without a clear financial plan for the business and personal situation, getting your company off the ground will be a big challenge. We got you covered though!
