Project: Business Plan â€“ Part II
This course has a major project assignment due in Week 5. It will take more than a week’s effort to adequately complete it. Plan time to start the research and work on the assignment earlier than the week in which it is due.
The group of investors who saw your presentation several weeks ago seemed impressed and believed your business had potential. However, they gave you some feedback that you needed to hear. Your presentation did not include financials, organizational structure, employee skill sets, your background and brief bios of others involved, as well as who your stakeholders are and the nature of your commitment to them from an ethical standpoint.
Using this input plus the feedback you received from your instructor on the first part of your project, complete the finished version of your business plan presentation. You will update your PowerPoint presentation developed in Week 3 and prepare an additional 6 â€“ 10 PowerPoint slides to address the following:
- Financial projections
