Business Plan Development and Review

The Wayne Business and Industry Center will offer two free workshops on business plans 6-8 p.m. on June 3 and July 22 in Room 101 of the Walnut Building on Wayne Community College’s main campus in Goldsboro.

In the “Business Plan Basics, Part 1 – Development Workshop,” participants will outline plans for start-ups or revise existing plans. “Business Plan Basics, Part 2 – Business Plan Review” will help those who are working on plans assess their progress and those with completed plans a chance to evaluate them. Participants can attend either or both sessions.

Business plans are tools to help envision the whole of a business. They serve as a way to thoroughly develop ideas and prepare them for presentation to investors or lenders, and will continue as a reference over time.
