About the Workshop
A business plan is vital to any startup. It often outlines the company’s vision and key strategic priorities that give investors and potential business partners an opportunity to gain deep insights into the startup. Often, the business plan is distilled into a business model canvas as well and it provides founders an opportunity to really think through their business. We are excited to have Futurpreneur host a session on how to write a business plan and leverage their online business plan writing tool.
