Business Planning for Startups
Tue. 18 October 2016, 7:30 am – 9:15 am ACDT
Looking to start your own company? Having a coherent business plan is essential. Not only will it help you map out the next steps, but a business plan will identify your market, help you monetise and validate your idea and also, provide a means to articulate to those who are important to your success, an understanding of the value of your idea.
