Welcome to the One-Page Business Plan video workshop!
This course is based on a workshop first delivered as part of the Time for a Change Program developed by Community Futures Capital Region to promote business ownership in rural Alberta. The original live workshop has been redesigned as a video course in the light of COVID-19. It may be offered again as an in person workshop in Stony Plain, Alberta once the pandemic is under control.
The One-Page Business Plan is a high-level workshop developed for those first time business owners who are looking to create a brief business plan for their start up or as a way to get their business idea organized before writing a more traditional, detailed plan for submission to financial lenders, partners, or for themselves.
There is a hand out for this workshop – a One-Page Business Plan template – you can find it below, and it will be included again when we get to the appropriate part of the workshop.
Let’s look at the contents of the workshop in more detail.
Here’s what we’ll be looking at today:
- We’ll see what goes into a full Business Plan and when you might need one.
- After that, we’ll consider when a One-Page Plan may come in useful, and how it can help you even if you need to write a full plan at a later time.
- And, finally, we’ll look at the different elements of a One-Page Plan step-by-step.
So, let’s get started.
