About this course

The number one mistake of new entrepreneurs is that they fail to write a structured business plan. Simply having a nice idea is not enough to ensure business success, therefore execution is fundamental. Without structuring your vision, you risk losing potential funds from creditors and investors, as well as risk of guaranteeing the short and long-term viability of a sustainable business.

This one-day course will guide you through the process of writing your business plan, how to identify the risks and opportunities, how to build a comprehensive and coherent framework, and eventually to make you more confident in materializing your thoughts into a concrete working model and action plan.
