FLOURISHING IN AUSTERITY: Practical steps to take in a recession

“Recession is an opportunity to leap, not a season to squat.”

We are in a recession. That’s the  reality. But it doesn’t have to be your own business reality.

I’ve often said, “Recession is an opportunity to leap, not a season to squat”, and the earlier you take that to heart, the better for your experience in business.

There are things you can begin to do now to recover your business from the grip of the recession – practical things. These practical steps are the focus of our discourse in this compact course courtesy #StrictlyStartups.

Do you have an idea or project you really need funding for?

It is not any news that investors will first want to see your business plan before they decided whether your idea or project is fundable. The issue really is about what your business plan says to the reader within the first few minutes they take a look at it.

Right now, the Tony Elumelu Entrepreneurship Program is on offering an opportunity for 1,000 entrepreneurs across Africa to receive seed capital of $5,000 each (estimated at N850,000). Also, the British Council’s Enterprise Challenge 2016 application closes tomorrow with N1.5 million up for grabs by the winner, and 20 other winners will travel to the UK for mentoring with Richard Branson of Virgin Atlantic.

Between where you are and the prize money you seek is what I call a “Killer” Business Plan.

Business plans have for long been technical write-ups with jargons that even the entrepreneur doesn’t understand. But hey, that is about to cease.

My organization, StartUpPlus, has launched a project designed to help birth and nurture 100,000 startups in 2016: Strictly Startups Project #StrictlyStartups. Now, #StrictlyStartups is hosting a novel training on HOW TO WRITE KILLER BUSINESS PLANS particularly for those of you putting in for venture competitions. Find details below:
