Lean Business Planning | August 15

11:30 a.m. – 1:30 p.m.

An event for the100

The philosophy is simple: Keep your plans clear and concise, and use your planning process to improve execution and drive results. A business plan doesn’t have to be all encompassing. You’ll discuss the elements that you really need and why it’s important to maintain, revise and continually monitor your plan.

Fleshing out your business in such detail can be a worthwhile exercise for an entrepreneur, but the truth is that it’s not likely anyone else will ever spend the time to read it, whether you’re competing in a business plan competition or trying to raise money from investors. That’s why you also should be thinking about how to put together a summary or short-form business plan that ranges anywhere from 2-4 pages.
