A formal business plan is a required document for anyone in search of funding to start a new business, expand an existing business, or launch a new product. Fundamentally, a business plan will include a mission statement, business description, product description, market analysis, marketing plan, operations plan, management plan and financial projections. However, more than just a document, the process involved with putting the components of a business plan together will help the entrepreneur identify and mitigate risk.
Class instructor, Kelly Berry, is the owner of ResourceAbility, LLC and has been in business for over 12 years. She specializes in research, marketing planning, strategic planning and project management. Kelly is approved as a Service Provider for the Wisconsin Center for Technology Commercialization to write business plans and commercialization plans funded by state grants.
