Business Plan in a Day

  • The Bronzeville Incubator 300 E. 51st Street Chicago, IL (map)

Whether you're just starting out or growing an established business, your success and profitability depends on knowing your market, knowing your customer, and developing a plan to keep you on-track for success! These are just some of the benefits of writing - or updating - your business plan. During this workshop, we’ll help you write a highly-focused business plan, as well as provide hands-on assistance to get you from point A to Z.

What do we mean by highly-focused? We’ll follow the lean-startup business plan model. It’s less comprehensive, yet contains key, necessary elements. In the time allowed, we'll develop the following elements of your business plan:

  1. Company Description & Summary

  2. Mission Statement

  3. Value Proposition

  4. Business Structure Identification

  5. Cost-Struction & Financials

  6. High-Level Market Research

  7. Product & Services Refinement

  8. Marketing Strategy

  9. Operational Planning

  10. Future Business Outlook

You’ll receive a business-plan template on-site, a light breakfast, and a tasty lunch! You'll also receive hands-on coaching and support throughout the workshop from the Brand Chicago team! We'll provide breaks between sessions to give you time to work on your plans and to ask questions!

Tickets are limited to ensure each attendee receives hands-on support.

Please bring a laptop or a notebook!
