Business Planning

To secure financing for a business start-up or expansion, many creditors will require a detailed business plan. The Learning Edge's consultants can assist in completing the Business Plan which includes information regarding marketing, operations, management and financial forecasting.

A well-researched business plan is a critical component for creating a new business venture or introducing a new project or initiative in your organization. It is your portable document which forms the blueprint for your business. When seeking acceptance and commitment from financiers, stakeholders and decision-makers, it is a powerful tool for "selling" your idea and demonstrating your direction over time.
