“Attendees will get clear and concise insight on every step one needs to take in order to have the correct data to comprise a legitimate business plan,” states Antoine Smith, President and COO of the Technology Center of the Piedmont Triad, and Smith Gruppe, LLC.
Creating a strategic plan is the most important steps for aspiring business owners. According to the Small Business Association, only half of new establishments survive five years or more.¹ Most of the failures are due to the lack of planning pitfall.²
