This hands-on class will walk you through writing your own business plan and aim you toward applying for a business loan or grant from organizations, like Mercy Corps NW.
Each week, you will complete a section of your business plan. You will pull together any of the strategic marketing planning, research, costing, sourcing, branding, communications, and other work you may have done. You will speak to and write the narrative of your business and back it up with detailed facts and figures. You will work from a spreadsheet template for your profit & loss and cash flow statements — the very thing lenders want to see.
