It is easy to get lost in the crowd of governmental financing programs.

What are the various accesses to these financing programs? How do they work? Are they intended for you?

Match the strengths of your business to available opportunities. To do this effectively, you need to collect, screen and analyze information about the business environment.

The most important consideration in developing an effective approach to forecasting and planning is not solely depending on the internet to find information, but finding the right information quickly with the most relevant business information resources available.

This webinar will cover:

  • how to efficiently gather market information on-line to assist you in developing your business plan and marketing strategy;
  • how and where to seek financing;
  • how to find information on your competitors to determine the viability of your venture in a designated market;
  • how to determine what new information you'll need overtime as your situation and environment changes.
