Business Planning Guide
The IDEA Business Planning Guide is a valuable tool ventures can use to help them outline their plans. The Guide maps out each step ventures need to take in order for their idea to mature. These steps, or milestones, may include adding team members, prototyping, marketing, or going after funding.
The IDEA Business Planning Guide forms the backbone of an entrepreneurial journey through the different venture stages of Ready, Set, and Go. As a venture develops, the business plan will continually develop. By the time a venture reaches the Go stage, they will have a fully vetted business plan, which will allow them to apply for Gap funding.
