Business Plan Bootcamp

The Penn State SBDC Business Plan Bootcamp is an 8-week accelerator program designed to take entrepreneurs and business owners through the complete journey of writing a comprehensive business plan. A well-written business plan outlines the primary purpose of a business, designs plans for the future, identifies a unique value proposition, and lays out a financial roadmap to success. With a strong business plan, you can obtain bank financing and/or attract investors, recruit and retain employees, and operate a successful business.
Over the 8-week Business Plan Bootcamp, participants will attend 4 virutal training sessions, receive 4 one-on-one virutal coaching sessions, and get free access to LivePlan, a complete business planning tool. Upon completion of the program, participants will have a comprehensive and attractive business plan along with a pitch deck that quickly communicates their business idea to potential clients and investors.
Participation is by application only. Applications are due September 23rd and selected entrepreneurs/business owners will be notified of their acceptance on or before Wednesday, September 28th.
