Business Plan Basics

Carefully craft your plan for business success

presented by the DREAM Workshop Series

Thursday, March 16, 2017. 5:30 to 6:30 pm. Free admission, refreshments provided.

A top-notch business plan is organized in a clear and consistent manner.  It tells us exactly what the objectives are, what the product is and how it’s different, what the market looks like, how the value chain is organized, how the product will generate revenue, and how much it’s all going to cost.

There’s a lot to it.

On March 16th, Ed Bigney, treasurer and volunteer counselor at SCORE’s Downeast Maine Chapter, will show us how to properly flesh out our startup ideas so that people can’t help but take them seriously.
