Business Plan Review

If you’re starting a business, an important part of this process for many entrepreneurs is developing a strong business model and articulating your ideas in a business plan. Business plans can be useful in a variety of ways, including:

· Guiding the direction of the company,

· Setting milestones for the business to achieve,

· Aligning your financial projections with your business strategy, and

· Helping the company access funding from lenders and investors.

The purpose of this free service is to provide you with step-by-step information, resources, and templates that you can use to prepare your business plan.

Mentees meet with their mentors on a regular basis over a five-month period to get support to launch or grow their startups, set business goals, and work towards achieving them.
