If you answered yes to any of these questions, then you need to join us for the upcoming:
Start-Up Business Plan Workshop
This unique workshop is for all entrepreneurs and intrapreneurs who wish to avoid wasting time, effort and money while establishing and operating their new venture, regardless of whether you intend to self-fund or seek outside capital to grow your business.
Conduit Consulting’s Start-Up Business Plan Workshop is designed to help entrepreneurs and intrapreneurs effectively communicate how your business will embrace and capitalize on today's and future opportunities. When well-conceived and well-executed, a business plan can be an effective tool for orienting teams, securing alliance relationships, and raising capital which lead to enhancing your business’ valuation and expediting business success. Conversely, when businesses do not have a plan or it is poorly conceived, generally the business never launches or wastes considerable time and resources, then it eventually fails.
Our approach will help you reduce risk of failure. During this workshop, you will gain fresh perspective, strategic insights, relevent guidance and candid feedback and learn “how to” develop an executable realistic business plan as well as use it to advance along the road to success. Business Strategist and Corporate Development Specialist Jillian Alexander has extensive experience successfully positioning companies to launch, grow and achieve sustainable results. She will guide you to make strategic decisions that enable you to position your business for successful launch and profitable growth as well as be attractive to talented employees, strategic partners, lendors, and investors.
- WHY your Business Plan is one of your most important tools (Use it to control costs, mitigate risks and position for success)

Registration includes 45-minute post-workshop One-on-One Business Plan Review & Feedback session.
