The City of Vaughan’s Small Business and Entrepreneurship unit presents this four-part workshop series that will help you develop your business plan and create a viable budget and financial projections for your business. This is a free, virtual program, designed for startups and established small businesses to get their ideas on paper through a step-by-step process of developing a business plan. A well-written, realistic business plan that clearly articulates what you’ve already done and what you plan to do is a core requirement for qualifying for grant, loan and investment opportunities.

On top of the training sessions, all participants will be given an opportunity to book one-on-one meetings with our course facilitator to get feedback on their business and financial plans. Please see availability and book a timeslot HERE.

The upcoming series will be hosted over four weeks on Fridays at 10:30 a.m.

  • Ideation(Nov. 26): How you can easily validate your business idea before you start;
