SBDC Presents – Business Plan: The Tool that Drives Your Business

Please join us September 8th from 10:00am-11:00am.

In the words of Winston Churchill, “He who fails to plan, plans to fail.”  The failure rate of small businesses is over 60% inside of five years! If you want to decrease your chances of becoming one of the statistics, you must create a plan to achieve your business goals. 

In this session the Ohio SBDC will lead you through the key components of a working business plan. We will discuss:

• the executive summary

• the business and product description

• organizational structure

• the marketing plan

• business financial statements

• funding requests.
