This course covers the importance of planning the initial development and expansion of a start-up business. Topics will include the following: determining required information to include in the plan; drafting a business plan using business plan software; tailoring a business plan for a specific target audience; and “pitching” the plan to potential investors and other key contacts. Students will draft a business plan that could be used as a guide to start an actual business.
