The Plan I lecture introduces the business plan. It compares the pitch with the business plan. Recommendations about how to organize, structure and deliver the pitch are included. The importance of the introduction and conclusion is reviewed. Comments about the call-to-action within the pitch are noted.
Additional motivating and interesting startup quotes to encourage you to think and get started.
We thought we would illustrate a contrasting view concerning the comments we made about the SWOT analysis tool in Lecture 2. The bottom line here is this: do not chase down every possible internet start-up article and include the material in your plan.
Additional quotes to consider and which may inspire entrepreneurs. We have found many quotes help inform from a different perspective and also may spur innovation and creativity.
