Having a plan for your business is fundamental to its success, without a plan you run the risk of drifting along and never quite getting there. In fact, you may not even know where 'there' is.
We work with you to unravel your ideas and goals and build them into a tangible business plan that is realistic and achievable.
Using tried and tested methods and some of our own, we will guide you through all aspects of your business plan and set some strategic markers and milestones to keep you and your team on track.
Business Planning for Start-Ups
Whether you are just at the ideas stage, looking for funding or have already started trading, having a business plan and clear ideas will make the start-up stage of your new venture a lot easier.
We offer training either on a 1-2-1 basis or as part of our workshops, or individual mentoring to help guide you through these first few months of your new business.
What we do:
- We will work with you to enable you to gain some valuable insights and skills whether you are just at the ideas stage or if you have already got some plans in place.
- We will show you how to register your business and how choosing a name for your business is more complicated than you might think.
- We will make sure you have a good knowledge of key financial and legal legislation that affect your business.
- We will give you an introduction to marketing a small business and identifying potential customers and competition.
At the end, you will have a clear plan of what to do next to make your business grow and thrive.
