Unsure where to start on creating and formalizing your business plan? A good business plan guides you through each stage of starting and managing your business. You'll use your business plan as a roadmap for how to structure, run, and grow your new business. But, you don’t need to write a 10 page document with MBA-level detail in order to start building your business. In this workshop with IFundWomen Product Manager, Maya Brooks, you’ll use the IFundWomen Startup Canvas to help you conceptualize, formalize, and organize your business plan. We’ll brainstorm together on your business model, your target customers, your marketing strategy, and your value proposition.
Learn why you need a business plan and how solidifying your plans on paper can help guide you to success.
Learn what a Startup Canvas is and how to use it to get your customer-problem-solution foundation in order.
Learn some key frameworks for identifying your competition, target market, and go-to-market strategy.
Learn the pros and cons of different types of business models for B2B and B2C businesses.
Fill out the IFundWomen Startup Canvas live with Maya during this live demo.
