Business Plan Bootcamp
May 4, 2021 @ 6:00 pm – 8:00 pm EDT
The Penn State SBDC and Harrisburg LaunchBox powered by Penn State Business Plan Bootcamp is an 8-week accelerator program designed to take participants through the entire journey of writing a full business plan. A well-written business plan outlines the primary purpose of a business, designs plans for the future, identifies a unique value proposition, and lays out a financial roadmap to success. With a strong business plan you can run a successful business, obtain bank financing, find the right employees, and attract investors.
Throughout the 8-week Business Plan Bootcamp, participants will use LivePlan (complete business planning software), attend 4 mandatory teaching sessions, and receive 4 one-on-one coaching sessions, all via ZOOM. Upon completion of the program participants will have a full business plan as well as a pitch deck to quickly communicate their business ideas to potential clients and investors.
Applications are due April 23rd and applicants will be notified of their acceptance on April 28th. If accepted into the program, participants will receive free access to LivePlan software for 3 months and have a chance to win up to $500 in funding during a final pitch competition.
