2 - 4 p.m.

Guest Speaker: Devesh Dwivedi, MBA, Idea2Inception Inc.

Presentation: The Two Sentence Business Plan

Attend and learn how to:

  • Write an actionable, easy to execute and precise business plan by marrying an action plan, business plan and a to-do-list together.
  • Avoid the fear of writing a lengthy business plan. Take up the challenge of writing a business plan by taking it in piece meals versus being scared of writing a business plan or wasting time.
  • Write a business plan, what to include, how much to write, how to do the research and info finding and most importantly, common mistakes and pitfalls to avoid.

There will be free refreshments, door prize draws and tours of the library business collections.
