Build a foundation for your business.
Bringing your ideas to life can be hard work — but it’s a lot easier when you share that work with others.
You, a person with phenomenal ideas and a passion, has heard it before:
“You really really need a business plan if you’re going to make this work.”
Or maybe you’ve launched your idea, built up a bustling side gig, or even made it full time with a measure of success, but you still have this nagging feeling that you’re missing something. You know there are many possible paths to success, and you want to find the one that matches your unique strengths and values.
(Plus, you might find the idea of sitting in a room by yourself writing a business plan truly, dull and painful.)
The thing is, that most of the time you don’t actually need a formal business plan at all.
You need a strategy, a new set of skills, and a solid understanding of business principles.
In a word, you need a foundation.
At its core, our Basecamp course is an eight-week strategic business planning process.
But unlike other short-term programs where you listen, learn, and leave, we engage in active planning together. We support you to gain the skills and knowledge to create a foundation and help you assemble the tools to reach your goals.
Whether you’re dealing with a new idea or an existing organization, successful entrepreneurs must toggle back and forth between planning and implementation seamlessly and quickly. The faster you can start to implement ideas, test them, gather real feedback and adjust the plan, the more confidently you can begin your ascent.
Unlike most other business planning courses, we’re as interested in what drives you personally as your financials. Your happiness and personal drive are as important to your business model as your revenue and funding, and become the essential touchstones for forging your unique path.
More than writing a traditional business plan, you will gain a deeper understanding of how you create value through your business and the skills to continue to grow for years to come.
