As an entrepreneur, taking the initiative to develop a solid business plan is one of the best gifts you can give yourself. A business plan will serve as a roadmap you can use to establish goals, track progress and even attract important investors. Sounds pretty great doesn’t it?

The World Trade Centre Winnipeg is proud to launch its newly developed Business Plan Program available for Manitoba entrepreneurs. Throughout the program you will be assigned your personal Business Advisors who will help guide you on the right path and ensure you receive the support needed. In addition to personalized support and access to industry experts, you will receive a detailed workbook in which every section has been carefully structured and tailored for this program.

The Business Planning Program consists of 6 sessions covering the various elements which are key to the development of your plan such as writing vision and mission statements, defining your products or services, establishing market strategies, determining human resources requirements, setting sales goals and gaining a better understanding of all things finance!
