2018 Innovation Award Nomination: Prospera Business Network/Montana Women’s Business Center Power Up Class
The Power Up: Create Your Business, Financial and Marketing Plan class has trained nearly 150 budding entrepreneurs since launching in April 2017. The group setting has provided an efficient vehicle for answering common questions we hear from small businesses. The curriculum includes how to write a business, financial and a marking plan, building a solid foundation for the next steps in financing. In addition, the class helps entrepreneurs focus on the importance of understanding the demand for their product or service, expected revenue and expenses, the economy, how strategic partnerships can change their business and much more. These alternative topics help entrepreneurs discover if their business can be viable or not.
The format has created another benefit: a sense of community with other entrepreneurs. Economic development organizations like Prospera provide the venue, knowledge, and connections to support thriving Montana businesses. Please
