Lean Business Plans – a BioNB Webinaradmin February 4, 2017
Have a great business idea? The next step is to sit down and write a 100-page business plan, right? Wrong!
Traditional business plans have their place, but when you’re starting out, your focus needs to be on validating your market and figuring out your business model. A business plan is essential, but the focus should be on “business planning” rather than “business plan writing.”
In this webinar we’ll discuss alternatives to the traditional written business plan. We’ll discuss in detail how to put together a 10-15 slide deck, how to iterate it, and how to use it as a working document and as a tool to get interest from investors by turning it into a pitch deck. The template we’ll provide can be used right away in your own business planning activities.
Our goal is to save your time and get you focused on building your business to meet a market need, not sitting at your desk writing!
