FCC: Business Plan Bootcamp


Having a clear, actionable business plan is a worthwhile investment. It allows you to define core objectives and a detailed plan for how to achieve them. It can also help secure financing, attract investment or act as an internal guide, keeping your management team focused on the same goals.

Join us for a five-part virtual event series on what you need to build a successful business plan. Facilitated by Alex Strachan, a Senior Consultant with MNP, each webinar will feature a new topic, highlighting a different step in the process.

To get the most value from these sessions, plan to attend all, or pick the ones of most interest to you. All participants will receive a recording following the event.
