Zenagos' Pathways to Promotion: Foundations class

New Product Business Planning is designed for small business owners who need to make a business plan for a new product or service, so they can be sure they have the resources they need and are ready to apply for loans or grants. This course is also appropriate for a professional who has been tasked with creating a proposal for the launch of a new offering inside a larger company. Participants will describe the opportunity represented by the new product or service, conduct a market analysis including a competitive landscape, build a marketing plan with multiple channels, lay out an operations plan including staffing rollout, and write an executive summary. The final deliverable for the course will be a brief “pitch deck” of slides that participants can use to present their plan. The course includes live Zoom sessions, tools and templates for practice, and unlimited feedback from the Zenagos® Experts.

  • 10 hours live class time: M-F 10am-12pm (via Zoom)
  • 4 hours practice deliverables (1 hour each, M-Th)
  • 14 total class hours

Note: this course does not cover how to build a financial projection (“pro forma”). Zenagos’ companion course Building Financial Projections covers this material.
