Business Plan 101 @ BiGAUSTIN Business and Technology Center
Mar 21 @ 6:30 pm – 8:30 pm

Business Plan 101

A Goal Without a Plan is a Wish

Most businesses fail due to lack of proper planning. Don’t let yours be among them nor allow opportunities to get partners or funding slip away by not having a complete plan for your business.

This class will help you to clearly understand the strategic process of developing a business plan. Using BiGAUSTIN’s very own business plan template, the instructor will go over each section of the plan and explain what needs to be discussed in it.

So bring a pen, let the ideas flow, understand how feasible your business is or could be and learn how to maximize its potential.

Contract Basics @ BiGAUSTIN Business and Technology Center

Contract Basics

Contract Basics

This course is intended to help you identify contract terms to which you should pay the closest attention to. With this basic familiarity on top-level issues, you will be better able to assess and manage the contract-related risks associated with your business.

This course is not intended to be a comprehensive guide on contract issues and doesn’t constitute as legal advice. Price and performance specifications will not be addressed as there are too many contingencies. That said, be sure to capture this in your agreements in a way such that each party’s rights and/or obligations are clear.
