For businesses looking for success, the two main reasons business fail are lack of a business plan and poor management. This course covers both topics.
For businesses looking for funding, the tools participants learn in the course are ones to help increase the odds of getting a loan or an investor. Banks and investors prefer businesses with “A” management and “B” products or services over businesses with “B” management and “A” products or services. The management skills and business plan process taught in this course helps improve the entrepreneurs’ management skills, and the written business plan itself is structured to demonstrate that the entrepreneur is “A” management.
